With the presidential election fast approaching, the United States faces perhaps one of the greatest dilemmas in recent history. Barack Obama's talk of "hope and change" appeals to many voters, while others fail to see how he plans to bring about change or instill hope in the hearts of the apathetic public. His oratory skills mask his lack of substance.

John McCain's positions, similar to those of our current president, will also prove detrimental to America.

What will voters do when election day comes and the choice is between two equally unqualified candidates?
