Trusted Parenting Site Offers Positions on Family Issues for Candidates

Clinton, McCain & Obama

BOSTON, March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2008 Presidential Campaign is one of the most riveting in recent history. As our country makes crucial decisions about who will be our 44th president, families can turn to FamilyEducation.com and Infoplease(R) to find the information they need to understand the presidential election process and make an informed decision on November 4.

Infoplease offers easy-to-use information about where each of the candidates stands on important issues, such as education, health care, taxes, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The site also features engaging in-depth presidential candidate biographies that explore the childhood, education and philosophies of the remaining candidates, Democratic Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama; and Republican Senator and presumptive candidate John McCain.

In a year where terms such as "superdelegate" and "caucus" have become part of everyday conversations, Infoplease offers insight into the complexities of our presidential election process. The reference Web site provides a detailed explanation of how the Electoral College works versus the popular vote, as well as historical background on past elections and what makes the 2008 campaign so monumental. By visiting Infoplease, voters can also learn the residency requirements for voting in their states and where to find their nearest polling place.

"A woman, an African-American man and a Vietnam War hero -- all U.S. senators -- are running for president. It has been nearly a half century since we have elected a senator to the presidency, so no matter whether it is Senator Clinton, Obama or McCain we send to Washington, D.C., in January 2009, campaign 2008 will be historically monumental," said Jess M. Brallier, publisher, FamilyEducation and Infoplease. "With the resources on FamilyEducation and Infoplease, families can engage in the excitement of the presidential election, learn more about the process and make an informed decision when they vote on Election Day."

Families can also use the resources on FamilyEducation to start some lively dinner table conversations. Reading the biographies of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain, they can talk about the roads their lives took on the way to being candidates for U.S. president.

Confronted by political ads every time they turn on the radio or the television, parents can find tips on FamilyEducation for helping their kids become media savvy. With these tips, parents can engage their kids in a discussion about the ads, helping them to separate fact from fiction. Or families can discuss the importance of voting after reading the article, "Why Don't Americans Vote?" on FamilyEducation.
