How would Obama or McCain govern as president?

Americans will know in a little more than a week who'll be the country's 44th president, but despite all the promises and the campaign bluster, they won't know until Jan. 20 and beyond how Barack Obama or John McCain would govern. A landslide win for Obama could sweep more Democrats into Congress and give him a relatively free hand to change course at home and abroad. A sinking economy, however, could force him to shift priorities.
