    The presidential race is certainly becoming an interesting one. Like most of America, I've watched several debates between the candidates, checked out their Web sites and read all the news stories I could find, just trying to get a handle on which of the candidates would be best for the job.

    Hmmm.

    So I tried it. And boy was I surprised.
