These have all been very good points, and that last one got me thinking about which of the two real candidates would look best with an e-book reader in their possession. I know this is a superficial thing to do, but this world thrives on fashion and, as such, I am going to throw out some mock-ups of what out future president might look like if he had an e-book reader with him when not on a plane.

First up is John McCain in some kind of hospital, reading an e-book and relaxing while the doctor gives him a check-up. This one is definitely anachronistic (Sony didn't even exist back when McCain was this good-looking!), but I figured that since Barrack Obama is already the younger, cooler man in this rodeo, it wouldn't be fair to show a current picture of McCain with that thing sticking out of his face.


Finally, here is a picture of Obama himself in Washington D.C. (you can see Capitol Hill over there in the background), holding his Sony Reader and smoking a cigarette (why was this the first time I've heard about him being a smoker from a Google image search result page's link to a framed version of the original page containing that image, and what else don't I know about this guy?!). I have obviously modified this image significantly, but only because the original was a close-up of his head and there was nothing for him to hold his e-book reader with.


For those of you wondering why I didn't include an image of Independent candidate Ron Paul holding an e-book Reader, it's because FOX News would have just censored it out! "You" decide '08!
