IF there’s butter and white wine in your refrigerator and Fig Newtons in the cookie jar, you’re likely to vote for Hillary Clinton. Prefer olive oil, Bear Naked granola and a latte to go? You probably like Barack Obama, too.
And if you’re leaning toward John McCain, it’s all about kicking back with a bourbon and a stuffed crust pizza while you watch the Democrats fight it out next week in Pennsylvania.
If what we eat says a lot about who we are, it also says something about how we might vote.

Interesting article in The Times today called "What’s for Dinner? The Pollster Wants to Know" which proclaims that political scientists can often predict who you are likely to vote for by what kind of food and drink you like.
All very good in theory - but I like things from all the categories. I have butter and white wine in my fridge, which means I like Hillary. But I also prefer olive oil, which makes me an Obama man. But I also like bourbon (hello, Jack) which puts me in the McCain camp - and you know that ain't going to happen.
I guess either I'm confused politically or I'm a glutton.
