This collection of cartoons, by America's top editorial cartoonists, is a history of ht 2008 presidential campaign. Hundreds of cartoons drawn from the most popular cartoon site on the web (www.cagle.com) tell the story of the primaries, the debates, the candidates and all the missteps along the way.

Synopsis:

Political cartoons convey ideas with a power and impact that could never be achieved with words; they tell our history as it is shouted from newspaper editorial pages, recording our feelings as America responds to the news of the day. Political cartoons have an impressive history from Ben Franklin's cartoons through hundreds of years and scores of Pulitzer Prize winners who have made our nation laugh and cry. Political cartoons have legions of fans from news wonks to Social Studies teachers throughout the country, as political cartoons are required curriculum in every state. Our books are a visual history like no other and are the premier journal of record for a great American art-form.
