As an Obama supporter, it really annoys me whenever I see a Clinton supporter say that we're just drinking the Kool-Aid. Recently, though, I've been thankful that this phrase has been turned back towards the Clinton camp.

Still, on a recent trip to supermarket I passed the Kool-Aid section and noticed all the wonderful flavors of Kool-Aid and wondered what flavor Kool-aid would be most appropriate to either camp.

With the help of Wikipedia's list of flavors and some other resources, I tried my best to find the right flavor for each side.

I eliminated any of the simple basic flavors, such as Cherry, Punch and Strawberry. Let's go down the list and take a look at some of our favorite Kool Aid Flavors:

 title=

Blue Berry
 title=
I think this one can work for Obama. I love the blue color and I hope to see lots of blue when he wins the election!

 title=

Changin' Cherry
 title=
Changin' Cherry also works quite nice for Obama but I'm not too thrilled about the magician. It alludes towards illusions and trickery. Boo!

 title=

Cherry Cracker
 title=
I'm soooo not going there.

 title=

Chicken
Chicken!? Seriously? There's a chicken Kool-Aid? I couldn't find any confirming information on this so I'm going to assume Wikipedia's entry is wrong until I find out otherwise.

 title=

Ice Blue Island Twist
 title=
Obama's blue, he's cool as ice and grew up in Hawaii. I like this one.

 title=

Lemon-Grape
 title=
Outdated and it combines two of my least favorite flavors, lemon AND grape. I think this is Hillary's flavor.

 title=

Oh Yeah Orange-Pineapple
 title=
I just like this one since this is the Kossack Kool-Aid. It's orange and we support Obama more, hence the pineapple.

 title=

Scary Blackberry
 title=
I ain't touching this with a 50-foot pole.

 title=

Purplesaurus Rex
 title=
There's a dinosaur on the front. It's not totally blue, and it's not completly red. Did we find Hillary's flavor? Well, probably not as purple can indicate a union of the red and blue states.  

 title=

Sunshine Punch
 title=
I'm liking this one too for Obama. After 8 years of Bush in office it's time to let the sun rise! It also has a nice commonality with Obama's campaign logo.

 title=

Strawberry Split Punch
 title=
The split alludes to divisiveness and Hillary is certainly a polarizing person. Is this Hillary's flavor?

 title=

After looking through the flavors, I personally like Ice Blue Island Twist for Obama and Lemon-Grape for Hillary. But that's just my opinion. What do you think?

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.
