Race to the White House: The Final Dash

Front-running Democrat Barack Obama, seeking to become the first African-American president, and Republican John McCain enter the final lap Tuesday in their race to the White House.

After an epic campaign, Democrats are targeting big gains in the Senate and House of Representatives, after eight turbulent years under President George W. Bush.

Senator Obama is the hot favorite with wide leads in national polls and the edge in a string of battleground states which could swing the election either way.

The US is facing its worst financial crisis since the 1930s and with American troops embroiled in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, both Obama and McCain have pledged to restore the frayed self-confidence of the world's lone superpower.
