With 2008 just around the corner, people are pulling out all the stops when it comes to the next presidential election. A new website has been launched that allows anyone in the world to post their profile. The public can then vote for their favourites. Hilary Clinton caught wind of the website (www.U4Prez.com) and even mentioned it on TV... George Stromboulopoulos from The Hour has taken it one step further by entering George Bush himself into the running!

Implications - This crafty website enables any regular Internet user to "run for president" by uploading a personal profile and allowing the masses to vote on favorites. Whether Democrat, Republican or Independent, the profiles with the most votes can run in primaries against each other and enhance the interactive political experience.
