Candidates' Cookie Platform

The cousins were over here the other night, for dinner and to watch the debates on TV. We pretty much came up with our slate, plus a new set of cabinet officers, all of them winners and bipartisan, too. Go figure. So I came up with my own platform, or rather, a cookie platter of candidates. All of them must be pretty tough cookies, going after a job that one commentator mentioned will literally take years off your life. YIKES! Some of these candidates already look rode hard and put away wet. Here's to 'em all and may the best cookie win! Names were randomly drawn, not in any order of personal preference:

McCain - vanilla iced shortbread

Richardson - drop cookies (UPDATE: he quit the race)

Kucinich - cookies from the Keebler elves

Clinton - ginger snaps

Romney - snickerdoodles

Obama - macadamia nut chocolate chip

Huckabee - moon pies

That's all we have so far, but the only thing that really matters is that we get out and vote.
