Choose your candidate: Barack Obama or John McCain. After you've chosen your candidate, it's a race across the United states as you jump over campaign roadblocks and other various obstacles. You also have to jump up and grab money so you can pay for your campaign. To move your candidate, push the right arrow to run forward and push the up arrow to jump. Obviously, this isn't what a real campaign is like, but campaigns are hard work and require lots of money so get out there and get your candidate to the other side of the US before the other candidate.
