Welcome to the Election 2008 Blog

Welcome to the University of Richmond Collegian's Election 2008 blog. Here, we'll hear from people from various sides of the political spectrum provide their opinions, analysis and thoughts about the 2008 presidential election between Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, a Democrat, and Arizona Sen. John McCain, a Republican. The views expressed here are explicitly those the viewers and do not necessarily reflect the views of The Collegian staff members or the publication. As always, post comments and reaction to what's written here. If you have any suggestions for additional contributers, please contact online editor Dan Petty at
