    I'll try to make many different threads so we don't get get swamped. Post and discuss news about the 2008 election here.

    Good kickoff story from today's New York Times:

    About time that they stop bickering and let the people know what their plans are SPECIFICALLY.

    People don't want to listen to statistics and jargon. Both of their websites have dozens of pages of policy details.

    It's a electronic age. Making other people forcibly inform you is passé.

    OPEC is not past trying to influence the US election. They did it is 2004. Now this:
    Bloomberg.com: Worldwide

    Oil prices are falling fast and OPEC says it will not alter production.

    Is this a signal they want Obama or McCain? A fair case could be made for either one. Not that I care what they want, but it may give some clues as to how OPEC is going to deal with the new administration.

    The reasons that OPEC wants McCain or Obama also need to be considered. If they want Obama because they know McCain will increase domestic supply, that's good to know. Likewise if they feel the alt energy Obama is pushing can be a reality and they want McCain, that's good to know.

    I suppose this one is the official election chat?

    Anyhow, that hologram on CNN. OMG! That's the coolest thing i've seen in years. I have to admit though, I was afraid the Emperor would beam in with new marching orders for the Imperial forces. xD

    Indiana really close btw, I think McCain is gonna pull through.
