Election Connection

Follow the candidates' paths

There are metaphors galore to describe the rise of a candidate to the White House, so why not literally map it out? Republican Sen. John McCain and Democratic Sen. Barack Obama have lived, worked, and served all over the world. While they are both Senators with deep ties to their home states, they've moved around far more than the average American.

To really get a perspective of where both candidates have been, check out Google's Election maps, which pushpin every move the candidates make, from childhood home to last night's campaign stump speech.
