Elections - Campaign 2008
The 2008 election led to President Barack Obama's appointment and a Democratic-led Senate and Congress. U.S. Senator John McCain surprised many by picking former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential nominee. Pastors came under the spotlight as Obama parted ways with pastor Jeremiah Wright over sermons that drew scrutiny and McCain disassociated himself with pastors John Hagee and Rod Parsley.
