"The 2008 Election: The Ruling Class Conducts its Hidden Primary"

For a year or more prior to the start of the regular Democrat
and Republican primaries, the corporate ruling class selects its
favorite candidates by funding, advising and advertising them
in its media. What emerges are a small group of "serious," "leading," "viable" candidates in both major parties, all of whom are acceptable to the corporations and ruling class. One of them invariably goes on to become President, preserving corporate ruling class hegemony. Key ruling class policy planning/think tank organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations have a key behind the scenes role in this process.
