These are the 4 presidential candidates for 2008 that are still left in the Democratic & Republican primaries, with Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. & Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton competing for the Democratic bid while John Sidney McCain, III & Michael Dale Huckabee competing for the Republican bid.
These 4 job applicants are interviewing for one of the most important positions in the United States, Commander-in-Cheif. We, the citizens of the United States, are the employers who need to decide which applicant to hire.
