January 16, 2008 -- From Sarina, a reader, from Los Angeles, CA, who is affiliated with the site.
Whitehouse Countdown is a fun and informative look at the 2008 presidential campaigns. Users play games and participate in a variety of activities to “support” the candidate of their choice by earning virtual bucks for their candidates’ campaign chests. The site is factual, non partisan, and highly engaging with wonderful animation including a special animation, Vote For Me, which features all the candidates in a comedic setting, dancing to the music of Woodstock veterans, Sha Na Na. Kids and parents alike will enjoy this light-hearted look at the upcoming elections and hopefully be motivated to become more involved in the democratic process.
