Would seem that both candidates have paraded their families around in front of the cameras, and it really does not bother me that the candidates have done so.

Thus far though , oddly enough , the only complaints seem,to be when when Obama's family is seen. For some reason seeing the families of other candidates does not bother folks as much.

Perhaps those feeling uneasy about it should reflect upon their thinking a little bit.

Does anybody really look at these cloying images of a family acting like a happy family and think "Hey, they look like a happy family. I'll vote for that guy."

I'd much rather they stuck to politics. Other countries do.

Too bad that the raw energy evident each day, and the thunderous applause and cheers, and the "Four more years" chant don't translate through a pictorial essay! The energy on that last night was electrifying.

I am a Canadian and support Mr Obama. I wish all middle and working class Americans who don't support him could see him, and the Democratic party through my eyes. If you haven't read it, take a look at TomCat's article Q.E.D. http://www.care2.com/news/member/527046926/3448097 and subsequent comments.

Adam, while I agree that green is an important issue, causing people at a time like this when the fate of this country is so at stake is basically taking away good votes from President Obama. Now is not the time to do this.

Dr C according to all of that information this country is being sold out. All the more reason for vote for Obama and Biden in November.

This is just crazy and if you had told me that something like this could happen here on US soil I would have said you were crazy. But here it is happening before our eyes. Vote people vote. Pay no attention to these negative hirelings.

Get involved in your neighborhoods helping as many people register and vote as you can.

A vote for a third party, { my opinion}, is a vote for Romney!!
