Heads I Win, Tails You Lose

Reflecting upon the 2008 US presidential race, can you think of a single American election in which the philosophical difference between the two candidates was as insubstantial as it was between McCain and Obama?

Perfectly encapsulated:


Obama: "I want change."

McCain: "Well, I want change too."

Obama: "But I want it for the sake of this great nation."

McCain: "Yeah, you have to put your country first."

Obama: "And that means taking your money."

McCain: "Yes, we're going to take your money. But I mean that in an increasingly conservative way as we get closer to the election."

Obama: "I still mean it in the socialist way but I'm going to get more and more vague on the details until I'm elected, mmmkay?"
