1. C.
We need everyone's vote to get Obama into office, then we can turn our attention to the other horrors. With McCain at the helm, we have absolutely no chance of addressing any of these other problems.

3. A. I would think the ongoing collapse of the world's economic infrastructure

5. I think people are optimistic about the financial markets (we've recovered before), but ...
... there is nothing in our history of ever recovering from such blatant domestic fascism before.
