After more than a year of debates, polls, primaries and scandals, it’s finally time for the 2008 presidential race to kick into high gear. And in that spirit, OK! is letting you the reader decide with our first ever double-cover issue!

On one cover is an exclusive look into the everyday family life of Democratic Party nominee, Senator Barack Obama, his wife Michelle Obama and their two adorable daughters, Malia and Sasha.

From their reading and TV watching habits to tucking the girls into bed at night, OK! talks to Obama’s celebrity and non-celeb friends and family to get a unique peek into the private lives of one of America’s most famous couples.

OK!’s other cover this week is dedicated to Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the 44-year-old Alaskan governer who first surprised the world when she was announced as Senator John McCain‘s running mate for the November election, only to shock everyone again days later when she announced the pregnancy and impending marriage of her 17-year-old daughter Bristol.

So now it’s time for you to decide which story speaks to your personal interests.
