Eye of the Storm

Cook, Charlie
July 2008
National Journal;7/26/2008, p31
The article focuses on the hiatus between the fight for nominations and for U.S. presidential race during a campaign in 2008. Such period is said to be an opportunity for presidential nominees Barack Obama of Democratic and John McCain of Republican party to focus on their objectives, beyond fundraising and planning for the election. It says that Obama is more than halfway through his tour in Middle East and Europe, which is aimed at projecting a presidential image. The author predicts that both candidates will select their vice presidents in August.
