What does the future president of the USA dream about?
Well, thanks to a new booklet called Jewels of Elul, we now know. The booklet is the brainchild of spiritual folk-rocker Craig Taubman, who wanted to mark the month of Elul when Jews look within themselves in preparation for the High Holy Days. So Taubman asked prominent Americans to disclose their dreams.
Presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain both replied promptly. Dreamed Obama: "We must reclaim that basic American Dream for all Americans."
And as for McCain: "As we look to the future, it is helpful to remind ourselves that there is no problem or challenge we cannot overcome together."
It would have been much more fun had they dreamed of purple elephants with green spots eating blancmange in a fish tank, but there you go.
