Presidential Travel: Be the Candidate
If there was any doubt that politics and pop culture have become thoroughly intertwined, this election season has surely put it to rest. (Let's not forget that Paris Hilton has released an energy policy!)
And of course, what we see on TV determines who we want to be. So just as "ER" inspired legions of medical students and "Alias" led to a spike in CIA applications, this year's 24/7 campaign environment is sure to create a whole new generation of would-be politicians and talking heads.
And now that being a political candidate is about the coolest thing a kid could hope to grow up to be, the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia has jumped on the bandwagon with the new Headed to the White House exhibit. In the interactive exhibit, you get to design campaign logos, deliver soaring speeches, craft your strategy and make your way through a general election campaign. So if you think there hasn't already been enough campaign coverage, head to Philly and add to the din!
