Hannan Merritt Discussion Paper 2/7/08 Intro to American Politics The 2008 Presidential race is one of the most hotly contested races in recent history. On both sides of the aisle the candidates are fighting to gain the necessary delegates to win the election. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton the Democratic Party’s long time establishment candidate faces her rival Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, a voice of hope and change, in the Democratic primary. On the Republican side Arizona Sen. John McCain has revitalized both himself and his campaign to once again look like the leading candidate. His challenger Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts has currently hit a rough patch in his campaign requiring a large infusion of personal money and a restructuring of his campaign. This paper will discuss where each of these candidates stand on government involvement in the economy and social issues. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is a social and economic liberal who believes that the government should play a large role in the governing of the American economy. Sen. Clinton also strongly believes in programs for the disadvantaged of American society. Economically Hillary strongly believes in the power of the American middle class and strengthening the backbone of American society is one of her campaign issues. To do this Hillary wants to create a $50 billion Strategic Energy Fund to create jobs in the alternative energy sector of the economy

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
