Barack Obama versus John McCain: It's been hailed as one of the most historic presidential elections ever to be held in the United States. As the voters head to the polls to cast their ballots, filmmaker Michael Kirk examines the rich personal and political biographies of the two politicians whose disparate visions for leadership vary in some pretty drastic ways. Produced as part of the "PBS Vote 2008" election coverage, The Choice 2008 combines detailed interviews with advisors, friends, and associates of the candidates with the observations of prominent political commentators in order to venture behind the headlines and provide a comprehensive overview of the both candidates as well as their stances on key issues. From Obama's attempts to ensure that he isn't defined as an "African American politician" to McCain's remarkable resilience and repeated efforts to stand apart from the pack, this documentary offers an unbiased look at two truly remarkable men, and their quest to win the election that will decide the course our country will take over the next four years.
