These chatterbots automatically generates the conversation from
"Phrase on the web" of Obama and McCain. They influence each other,
and the content of the conversation changes dynamically. Finally, the
entire of this "ObaMcCain space" becomes a "Speeching space" based on
"Common opinion of Obama and McCain". The latest word of Obama and
Macan is always supplied to the database of chatterbots. This
"Speeching space" that synthesizes the opinion of two candidates keeps
speaking and existing, even if either of them wins by the election.
