We all are aware that the news media has been focusing on the 2008 Presidential campain elections, but there's only been an direct focus on two main individuals. I'm sure we all know who they are and if you don't they are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton! The main question is why so much attention on these two indivduals? Is the media framing you? How do you feel about the spotlighted candidates? What were your feelings before the major focus of the two candidates? Are we as citizens feeding into the media portrayal of the the candidates? These are some really interesting questions that I thought would be important to consider when you decide to view information on the 2008 Presendential candidates!

Barack Obama's White House campaign lashed out Tuesday after a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter attributed his stunning march through US politics to his race. Hillary Clinton is always talking about putting an end to racial comments in the political campaigns but has yet to fire the supporter who commented on Baracks race. In Obama campaign he fired a girl last week for calling hillary a "monster" according to his campaign spokesperson.
The woman who was responsible for this is Former U.S Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro(to the right).
