Because of all the media attention the democratic candidates get, their media representation is of the utmost importance. So, how are Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton represented in their media campaigns? And what role do racial and gender stereotypes play in these representations? In order to answer these questions, I will research the websites of the candidates which give an up to date overview of the images, speeches, texts, issues and videos as used in the media campaigns of the candidates. In the conclusion I will also position the candidates in the debate concerning empowerment and post-ethnicity in terms of representation.
