Relevant, engaging and interesting lesson topics. The Guardian's Election 2012 site is worth checking out for the data on voting, along with this Time article on the effort and focus on raising cash and spreading the campaign message.
I also used this short snippet with my geography classes this week of Obama's speech in Chicago following the announcement of his re-election. It's a great example of Obama's superb oratory combined with a great set of messages about hope and equality.
