Visualize this. You, a typical AAC (average American citizen), a Student at an American institution of higher learning in the YEAR (??) - timeline somewhere between 2000 and 2012 - have been chosen to spend 15 minutes with the President of the United States (thee most powerful Leader of the free world [or at least he or she would like think so]).

The Party is over. No partying for you either! You have been given a mission. Your mission ~ should you decide to accept ~ is to identify the two most important issues facing your generation. What two things would you choose to discuss and why? No. This is not a trick question. No. I don't think this question has ever been put quite this way for a Miss America or Miss Universe contestant.

- A) War and Peace
- B) The Budget and Taxes
- C) Racism and Crime
- D) Health and Education
- E) Making the World Safe for Democracy and Nothing Else Matters.
