1. Barack Obama V. Toilet McCain

This is history. The nation's first achromatic to attain this degree of political prominence, a adult male who's personal narrative is compelling on many levels, versus an American hero, a former Socialist Republic Of Vietnam prisoner of war who passed up a opportunity for an admiral's star when he became a politician.

Not since Toilet Jack Jack Kennedy faced Richard Richard Richard Nixon have there been such as a clear pick between the new and the old (Nixon was a modern-day of Kennedy, of course, but he was closely identified with Dwight Eisenhower).

Obama will stress his young person and vision, and usage the Bush's 3rd term subject advertisement nauseam. McCain will stress his experience and maturity, and claim his challenger doesn't have got the heart for the job.
