"The Political Machine 2008" is a strategic-political computer game from Stardock, in which the player leads a campaign to elect the President of the United States. The player accomplishes this goal by traveling from state to state and engaging in a variety of activities to either raise money or raise poll numbers. It is the sequel to The Political Machine released in 2004. The Political Machine 2008 features new characters such as Barack Obama and John McCain. The game focuses on much more current issues and the constant need for money. [Stardock. [http://www.stardock.com/newsitem.asp?id=1022 The Political Machine 2008 lets gamers run for President] ]

The developers have said that they will add new content into the game before November 4 (the election) and will update the issues as they change in importance. New candidates are also planned once minor bugs are ironed out. [ [http://forums.politicalmachine.com/317010 The Political Machine fourm post] (about halfway down the page)]
