For the 3rd video in the Profit and Social Justice series (#525: Blender animation of script), I am only using simple, beautifully textured text.

coming from their senatorial web page.

Also, I'd like to include some video clips of the 2 candidates during the campaign to illustrate the point made. I'll have to look for the appropriate clips.
