There was once a time when elites were respected as the best leaders, in­novators and people to admire. The academic elites were the professors, scientists and engineers we looked to for the newest, greatest solution, and the economic elites were the guys that “made it,” the ones that fulfilled the American Dream. In modern poli­tics, however, being called elite is a heinous attack that could have po­litically devastating ramifications.

In this campaign, both sides fiercely attacked the other candidate’s ability to be President of the United States. One of the more absurd attacks was the allegation that Barack Obama was secretly Muslim.

The 2008 election hasn’t been short on suprises, and the selection of Vice Presidents just added a new twist to this already facinating game. For months, Americans have been convinced that this election will be the most revolutionary one of our generation. Both the Republicans’ selection of Sarah Palin and Democrats’ selection Joseph Biden assure us that this will be the case all the way up to November 4. Electoral potential of both candidates aside, one can see that not only do the potential vice presidents give a little extra spice to the race, but the frenzy behind them both marks an end to the party images as we know them now and fosters a new age for both the Republicans and Democrats.
