The second series analyzed their buzzwords. The agenda series outlines what each candidate would do as president. The worldview series sketches how they would manage America's role in the world. The best moment series assesses the story that supposedly shows each candidate at his or her best. Flip-flops gives examples of how candidates may have changed opinions on some key issues.
