Polls for the 2008 Presidential race, which hasn't even started yet, have been all over the board.  At this point in the game success in such polls has a lot to do with name recognition which is not a very scientific indicator of which yet-to-be-announced candidates might actually have the right stuff to be the President of the United States.  It has not been possible to compare their positions on Presidential issues or activities on an apples-to-apples basis.  That is until now.  One of the tasks of any President is the issuance of Christmas cards.  Today, for the first time it is possible to vote on three likely Democratic Presidential candidates on the basis of performance in a Presidential activity in a poll that is at least as scientific as any poll today. So I present to you three images, one each from the Christmas greetings of John Edwards, Hillary Clinton and, Barack Obama and ask you to vote for you favorite.

John Edwards and Family:

Barack Obama and Family:

Hillary Clinton and Family:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
