An Historic Election

by LukeAmerica2020
The 2008 quadrennial cataclysm has been a tough-fought battle. Whatever the results turn out to be, it is an historic election.

The 2008 election is the first time in U.S. history that two sitting senators have run against each other for President.

It is the first time an African-American is a presidential nominee for a major party.

It is the first time both major candidates were born outside the continental United States — Hawaii for Obama and the Panama Canal Zone for McCain.

Since the Republican nominee for Vice-President is a woman, Governor Sarah Palin, the eventual winning ticket will be historic. Neither an African-American nor a female has achieved either office.

The Republican presidential candidate, John McCain, would be the oldest first-term president.

The Democratic nominee for vice-president, Senator Joseph Biden, would be the first Roman Catholic Vice-President.

And, this is the first time since the 1928 election in which neither an incumbent President nor an incumbent Vice-President ran for their party’s nomination in the presidential election.

Let’s make some history … Vote on Tuesday, November 4 !!!
