How to become Campaign Manager for the Kerry or the Bush team?

Step1: Be a Yank (oops, I'm out of the running already...)
Step2: Devote yourself to your party for, say, 20 years or so
Step3: Be smart (this is starting to look really bad for my chances)
Step4: Be a political friend of the candidate for several years prior

a) make sure you've never posed for Hustler,
b) never been caught murdering anyone
c) cannot have a conscience (that can't be right, "con science"?)

If you don't meet the rigid qualifications above, but still want the job, you can play this fun online game, in which you get to play campaign manager for the candidate of your choice. It's called Campaign Trail 2004, and you can play it by clicking here.
