The United States Presidential Election of 2008 elected former Vice President Colin Powell to the office of President of the United States, becoming the first black person to hold the office. President Powell also ran against Senator Barack Obama, who, if he won, would also be the first black person as President of the United States.

After the assassination of President Dean, Vice President Bayh, and numerous other Congress members, Barack Obama decided to run for the position of President. He was one of the survivors from the terrorist attack. The incumbent president, Tony Lake, decided not to run for reelection (Lake, the Secretary of Defense, was kidnapped by Mister Brooklyn hours before to protect him).
