The 2008 presidential campaign will be the first in 80 years in which neither an incumbent nor a former president or vice-president is running for office. Candidates are already jumping into and out of the race. Voters are already paying attention in high numbers - unusual, at so early a stage, in American presidential politics. The media, with more outlets and more airtime space to fill, is reporting every occurrence and misstep.
