Wherever you live, chances are you can't travel a mile without seeing a sign, symbol or sticker supporting Sen. John McCain or Sen. Barack Obama. (Is anyone really influenced by a bumper sticker?) But amid all the sound bites and campaign coverage, we felt the issues themselves needed some more airtime. That's why we're breaking them down all week on CNN Student News. On Monday, it was the Iraq war; on Tuesday, it's energy. Our hope is that, even if you're not old enough to vote yet, you'll have a better understanding of where the two major candidates stand as they make their final pushes for the presidency.
