With heads reeling from all the political banter, lets take a step back  to look at how we got here,  remember the highlights and see how students thought it would play out.

  •  Presidential campaigns tend to begin roughly a year before the New Hampshire primary, almost two full years before the presidential election.
  •  The republican’s kicked off the campaign season with a few memorable instances.
  • “Commerce, education,…what’s was the third one? Oops,” -Rick Perry
  •  Herman Cain tried to erase from our memories the 555 pizza deal and replace it with his proposed 9-9-9 tax plan.
  • The 40th republican national convention was held in Tampa, Florida, Aug. 27 to 30. The Democratic national convention was held in Charlotte, North Carolina Sept. 4 to 6.
  • Clint Eastwood, need we say more?
  •  Moderaters, love em or hate em they’re a central component to the debate process.
  • Between Romney’s binders of women and Obama’s claim of fewer horses and bayonets, the final debate got America talking.
