Presidential Cookie Bake-off

In the past four presidential elections, Family Circle magazine has held a bake-off featuring a favorite cookie recipe (not necessarily an original recipe) submitted by the candidates wives. We've been serving and enjoying the cookies submitted by this years 'hopeful' First Lady. The cookies on the left are Michele Obama's shortbread cookie and the ones on the right are Cindy McCain's Oatmeal-Butterscotch. The results are in, and Cindy McCain's cookie recipe has won the popular vote 54% to 44% as shared in the Nov. 1 issue of Family Circle magazine. In past years, the winner of the bake-off has also won the White House. Wonder if they've calculated the electoral votes?
