Presidential campaigns are different now. People no longer come to the candidate's home. Instead, the candidate comes to the homes of the people; his picture and message are beamed into millions of bedrooms and kitchens. The notepad and pencil are gone, replaced by computers and phone lines, video cameras, and satellites. The most important thing has not changed. This year, as every four years from the beginning of the republic, cadnidate and press will be joined - often suspiciously, sometimes in hostility - but always from the necessity as essential partners in the quadrennial dance of democracy.
