Senator Yamaoka has come through scandal and struggle to win the nomination at last, having convinced his former opponent, incumbent Vice-President Al Noah, to stand at his side. But the pundits say that while the dramatic internal struggle within the Democratic Party may have made for good theater, it won't help them much in beating the Republicans. This time the GOP has actually put forward a genuine American hero: Colorado Senator Richard Grant, the rugged elder statesman of the national defense who once walked on the moon.
A veteran of the early air war over Vietnam, Grant's god-like perspective was very different than Yamaoka's. Just how different will soon make national headlines, for while Grant keeps his true feelings about his country to himself, Yamaoka doesn't... which could cost him the election before the campaign's even begun!
