Barack Obama (Democratic Nominee; Winner)Edit

His main appeal was change, inspiration, and hope, in a face of a vast economic crisis. He was also fresh with new ideas, as well as a welcome change from the 8 disaster years of George W. Bush.

Hillary ClintonEdit

She lost to Obama in the Democratic Primary, but she had three main weapons:

  1. Fear
  2. Surprise
  3. Ruthless efficiency

She is served as the Secretary of State under President Obama from 2009-2013 until being replaced by John Kerry.

RepublicanEdit

Joe the Plumber John McCain (Republican Nominee)Edit

His main appeal was keeping the failed policies of George W. Bush, putting people to sleep, and fear mongering.

He was the Republican candidate. His choice for a running mate was Sarah Palin, which could put his judgement into question, as she was unqualified and an epic fail in general.

Mitt RomneyEdit

The famous ' klassic konservative'' kandidate, who appealed to.... umm.... something's gotta be wrong.... let's see.... DOES HE HAVE FLIP FLOP APPEAL?

Mike HuckabeeEdit

The governor of Arkansas, a kooky Baptist preacher who wants to amend the constitution so it is in line with "God's word", despite having said he'd appoint an atheist to work in his cabinet. He now runs a talk show on Fox 'News'.

Ron PaulEdit

Ron Paul is a notorious cult leader who worships a warped view of the Constitution. By using the long-lost technique of calling Neocons idiots whose lack of regard for the Constitution borders on treason, his popularity skyrocketed among those who watched Fox News and had the brain capacity to use electronic devices, as he won every post-debate poll until he was banned from debates and the Republican Convention itself.

Independent Edit

Ralph NaderEdit

Ralph Nader, despite being a strong supporter of liberal ideas, is still remembered by many as the candidate who, back in 2000 U.S. Presidential Election, resulted in George W. Bush being elected in the first place. He would have been a decent president, but he just had no chance of winning.

Vice-Presidential NomineesEdit

DemocratEdit

Joe Biden His main appeal was experience, was a strong asset to the Obama campaign by;

  1. Having strong foreign policy and national security experience.
  2. Campaigning for Obama in states such as Ohio and Florida, where he had done poorly in the primaries.
  3. Having a 60 percent approval rating with the American people compared to Governor Sarah Palin's 44 percent.

RepublicanEdit

Gov. Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin's main appeal was to female Republicans. She was chosen in an attempt by McCain to gain not only the Republican female vote, but the female supporters of Hillary Clinton's primary campaign al well. However, this didn't work. Despite gaining a few female supporters, she hurt the campaign with;
  1. Her weak foreign policy experience (despite governing between two foreign countries, Russia and Canada.)
  2. Her less than a year and a half of experience as Governor of the isolated state of Alaska.
  3. Her weak interviews with Kate Couric and her inability to name one newspaper she reads.
  4. The pregnancy of her teenage daughter undermined her support of Abstinence-Only Sex Education.
  5. Her overall insanity.

Election Outcome Edit

Obama and McCain won the nominations of their respective parties. The candidates from other parties barely got a look from the American voting public, because America is chiefly a two party state.

Obama was the winner of the general election on Nov 4th, 2008. It was a victory for Liberal values, sanity, and meant we didn't have to put up with a successor to George W. Bush.

All of the Republican states voted for McCain, and all the Democratic states voted for Obama. Thankfully, the Democratic states have a higher total population.
