There were so many proclamations of love at the conventions the past few weeks it felt like Valentine’s Day had come a few months early, as Alessandra Stanley noted in The New York Times: “Ann loves Mitt, Mitt loves Ann…Joe Biden’s wife Jill loves Joe, and Joe loves his ‘Jilly’… And Barack loves Michelle and Michelle loves Barack, even more than she did four years ago.”
But it’s not a love affair without chocolate, right? (And, like love, chocolate is bi-partisan! Think life, liberty, and the pursuit of chocolate.) I think the candidates should stock up on these sweet election-themed truffles from Moonstruck Chocolates—they come in both donkey (Democrat) and elephant (Republican) shapes—and give them to the objects of their affection. In the meantime, I’m tempted to put both types out in the RD offices to see which goes first… May the best candy win.
