U.S. Politics and Campaiging: The Game

My nine year old showed this game to me. (Actually, he was playing it and I looked over his shoulder and was pleased to see that my interest in maps and in politics has rubbed off on him.) It's on the on-line game site MiniClip and it's called Campaign.

The game is about the current U.S. presidential campaign; you choose players who are currently campaigning for President. Then you choose your staff--Spinmeister, Operative, Hatchet Man, or Fundraiser. When you play, you need to choose your moves wisely because each one (attack ads, rally, new hire) costs you money.
