Avi Lewis presents the weekly
magazine show, Inside USA
This US presidential race more than any other will be about money, power and presentation.

Inside USA's mission is to strip away the spin, and highlight some of the real issues in America - poverty, violence, race, health, and immigration.

We will be speaking to people on the ground - not television pundits, but real people with stories to tell - a full spectrum assault of American voices -young, old, white, black, immigrant, rich, and poor.

They will all get their say on the election, the candidates, and the issues that concern them.

We will be cutting through to the brutal reality of politics in the US - if it costs a billion dollars to run for president, and candidates' policies are shaped by their donors, is the White House itself for sale?

And we will address the politics of fear - since 2001, America's frontline of fear has been terrorism. Now, in the heat of election season, is that fear being re-directed at immigration, as candidates try to take American anxieties and turn them into votes?

The result of this US election will have a greater impact on the people of Iraq, than it will on many Americans.

Since the election of the most powerful politician in the world has global implications, we will be getting reaction from all over the world - from Baghdad to Beijing, via Havana.

And the candidates – in depth, who are they and what drives them?
