ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the 2008 U.S. Democrat and Republican political conventions and discusses the concept of the American Dream. The author suggests that the candidate most able to authenticate his version of what the American Dream means, and how it can be achieved, will likely win the election. An examination of the differences in both 2008 presidential nominees Senators John McCain's and Barack Obama's version of the American Dream is presented.
