Candidate Ice Cream Flavors

It's not real, folks. Just a nutty mock-up from Slate.

Last we told you, ice cream hippie overlords Ben & Jerry were endorsing Barack Obama and had created an actual flavor in his honor called "Cherries for Change."

Online magazine Slate was apparently not impressed with that name so it held a an Obama ice cream naming contest. So far Slate has endorsed Yes, Pecan as its front runner.

Not bad, but maybe Serious Eats can collaborate and one-up Slate? What would Hillary Clinton's ice cream be? What about John McCain's? <!--Scratch that head, and start recalling famous Obama quotes:

.... I don’t oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war....I'm not black. I'm all of America and all of America is like me...

and how they jibe with famous B&J flavors ... Chunky Monkey, Half-Baked, Phish Food ... Hm, this piece makes a pretty good argument for Half-Baked.-->
