Obama Has a Big Lead… on Amazon.com

Just did a quick search of both candidates on Amazon.com to see how their books rank. Barack Obama’s “The Audacity of Hope” is ranked 32nd overall in book sales. His first book, “Dreams from My Father” is ranked 74th overall. Even “Change We Can Believe In,” a collection of speeches and proposals from the candidate, is selling well. That book ranks 487th overall in books sold.

Meanwhile, John McCain’s autobiography, “Faith of My Fathers,” is ranked only 1,655th overall on Amazon.com. His newest work, “Why Courage Matters,” which was released in July, is ranked 21,529th.

Also worth noting: the third, fourth and sixth entries that come up when searching for Senator McCain’s name are for a Halloween masks of the candidate.
