US Politics: The Economics of Bush and Obama

Tableau is holding an Interactive Political Viz contest and I'm pretty sure they've forgotten about us Canadians again.  I've been playing with this viz for a while, not for the contest, but out of an interest in the economic crisis and politics.  I don't watch reality tv, but I'm addicted to American politics.  And let's not kid ourselves, American policies affect the world.

My focus with this viz was not so much about learning new tricks with Tableau as with telling the story.  Not that the two are mutually exclusive.
