Who will headline Election '08? Senator John McCain (R-Arizona,) Senator Hillary Clinton (D-New York,) former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani (R-New York,) Senator John Kerry (D-Massachusetts)... or could it be you?
Think & Ask invited readers to submit their own platform speech for a national convention during Election '08 as they ready themselves for the final run of the 2008 campaign.
Some readers expressed their opinion that a presidential campaign is reserved for the current two-party system, and any effort to buck the two-party system would be pointless.
Nonetheless, some took the exercise seriously and laid out a campaign platform which is most important to their values as the 44th president of the United States.
So...flash ahead to the year 2008: In this hypothetical setting it has been an election year of vast political change in the United States. For the first time in history, with the Republican and Democrat party candidates' well-funded campaigns in place, a third party candidate has empowered the voters enough to potentially topple the two-party system. All three candidates are neck-in-neck in the polls.
