After months of campaigning, debating, mud throwing, shaking hands and kissing babies--Barack Obama and John McCain will finally come head to head in the 2008 presidential election. This is a big election for the beef industry, as the elected candidate will make major decisions pertaining to agriculture during their four years of service.
