Barack Obama is Luke Skywalker, Hillary Clinton is Princess Leia, Rudolph Giuliani is Han Solo and Mitt Romney looks like the PackBot from iRobot, but is probably R2D2. I don’t know what it all means, but Israeli humor site AniBoom’s new animated series, Race for the White House, is worth a look – particularly if you are starved for laughs during the ongoing Hollywood writer’s strike.

US Senator of Illinois
A little more than two years since being elected to the U.S. Senate, he's widely considered a frontrunner for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
"Ebony and ivory live together in this handsome body…"

US Senator of New York

Her foray into presidential politics is the latest step in a long political career.
"… Everywhere I go now, people come up to me and say, “You and the black guy are the best… but you’re a little bit better”…."


Former Mayor of NYC

Called "America's Mayor" by some, his leadership after the Sept. 11 attacks increased the perception among voters that he's presidential material.
"Start reading the news… I’m running today… I had the toughest job there is, In old New York! It wasn’t heaven there, on 9-11 there, But I came through…for…old… New… York!"


senior US Senator of Arizona
A leading contender for the 2008 GOP nomination he's become an ally to President Bush on national security issues, including the war in Iraq.
"I’ll go changin’ To try and please you… I never let you down before, I’ll be right wing, or I’ll be left wing, Whatever you’re for, I am for!"
