    It’s an election year, but instead of doing a mini-bio on the leaders everyone knows, how about doing one on one of the more obscure candidates. Every election there are dozens of folks who run, but hardly get any publicity at all. You could do a search for “lesser known candidates” and “2008.” You could also do a bio on Pat Paulson. He is (or was… not sure if he is still alive) a comedian who ran for president for many years. Either way, a lot of these guys are real characters and make for a very interesting read.

Hope this helps.
