voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm faith lapidus.

voice two:

and i'm steve ember. this week our subject is the presidential campaign, heading into the biggest day of the nominating season: super tuesday.

(music)

voice one:

people wait in line to vote at a hollywood, florida polling site, 29 jan 2008
this presidential election is creating unusual interest and excitement across america, especially with young people and democrats.

the democrats hope to reclaim the white house after eight years of republican presidency. yet candidates from both parties are promising change.

voice two:

there are major issues facing americans. the weakening economy. the iraq war. other concerns include the troubled housing market, high costs of health care and energy, and the debate over illegal immigration.

but interest in the election is also being driven by the candidates themselves.

democrats hillary clinton and barack obama would become america's first female or first black president. republican john mccain would become, at age seventy-two, the oldest president elected to a first term. or if the republicans nominate mitt romney and he wins, he would become the nation's first mormon president.
