WE TV pokes fun with presidental poll

So, what do you get when you take all of the top presidential candidates and their spouses for Election 2008, put them tumbler filled with a thousand woman and start to shake it? You get Women's Entertainment Vote '08's "Purely Entertaining Political Poll."

WE Vote, http://www.wetv.com/we-vote/index.html, is a national grassroots initiative whose mission is to urge women to vote on Election Day. Approximately 1,151 woman were surveyed about a month ago for this special opinion poll, which has a little fun with the presidential candidates.

Poll questions and results included:

Who most needs a makeover?
John McCain at 30 percent. Seems like the Republican party should have shared the wealth of the $150,000 it spent sprucing up Palin. Then again, maybe not. Sarah Palin trails right behind McCain for most in need of a makeover at 19 percent. I don't know. I think she looks presentable enough.

Whose personal style do you like best?
Michelle Obama at 35 percent. People seem to like the J. Crew look on her. But here's what I don't understand, Sarah Palin is right behind her at 31 percent. So maybe she doesn't really need that makeover after all.

Which couple would you like to see in a reality show and follow around the White House?
Sarah and Todd Palin at 46 percent. With talk of hunting, pit bulls with lipstick and hockey moms on the campaign trail, a reality show with the Palins would be the highest rated on TV - ever.

Who would you most like to go dancing with?
Barack Obama at 38 percent. He looks like he's got moves.

Who do you most want to be stuck on a desert island with?
Barack Obama at 31 percent, followed by Sarah Palin at 21 percent. I say instead of me being stuck on a deserted island with either of them, they should be stuck together. Kind of like a "Survivor: The Presidental Race." Whoever gets home alive first wins the presidency!
