|10||270toWin||The presidential election is in your hands with the 270toWin App. It takes 270 electoral votes to win the White House. Make your predictions by starting with one of the many Library maps or create your own from a blank map. With one touch you are on your way to deciding which states will go to the Republican party, which ones will go to the Democratic party and which ones are leaning, likely or undecided. You can further customize each map you create by selecting a specific candidate for each party. The maps you create are automatically saved and can easily be shared through social media. Make as many predictions and maps as you like; you are only limited by the memory on your iPad. Learn election and state voting history as well. The History section contains an engaging interactive timeline. View candidates, the changing composition of the country and political parties, issues of the day and election facts. Even if your state leans red or blue today, this likely has not always been the case. The App contains a screen for each state, packed with facts and figures about a state's voting history from the date of admission. It even includes an early projection of the electoral votes each state will have after the 2020 Census.||--||Free||View in iTunes|

First Lecture from 4 Dems, 1 Moderate conservative - Biased ??
I watched the first introductory show, and it's quite obvious that Stanford has invited mostly Obama supporters, and a token conservative.
They mention money in the PACs and specifically mention the Koch brothers, but made no mention at all of Democrat money contributors like George Soros.
Also, they seem to think that students should dictate the outcome of the election without asking "What do Students really know about creating jobs, meeting payrolls, starting a business, paying taxes, dealing with regulations?"
They talk about fabrications in ads put out by PACs but don't mention fabrications by folks like Harry Reid making the unfounded claims about Romney's taxes, or the very nasty campaign being run by democrat supporters.
But to expect an unbiased and balanced review of the 2012 election from a California University is hardly realistic. You get what you expect -- left-wing views of reality.
Liberals only need apply
This is a good representation of what our college-bound children face: an education system overflowing with socialist professors and ultra-liberal educators determined to force feed young minds with their view of what America should become. That's why they are hell bent on making sure everyone goes to college; so they have time to wear our children down away from home and support. I've taught my daughter how to challenge their lies in public school and it really ticks them off; I've had more than a few meetings with teachers to stand up for what my daughter challenged them on... This country and the freedoms we enjoy are in big trouble if we can't get rid of "hope and change". ....I'll be called a racist now for daring to speak against the anointed one.
Going out of their way to present both sides of the debate
I really appreciated hearing a civil discussion between key insiders from both republican and democratic presidential campaigns. good stuff!
