We've survived the debates, the ads, the endless political back and forth -- election night is here at last and, however it all goes down, it's a great night for a party. We've come up with not one, but two menus for this momentous night; one for each candidate, inspired by each of their tastes and food preferences. Most of the menus are a bit over the top -- mix and match, or serve mini-versions of most of the dishes.
Use the menus as you please -- you could toe the party line and cook only the foods preferred by your candidate, or you could go bipartisan and mix it up as you see fit! Either way, cheers to democracy -- let's party!

Team Obama Menu
To kick things off, because the Obamas like Mexican food, and because these candidates could use a cocktail: an unbeatable margarita.
A small note about this menu: in the interest of keeping with the theme, we've left cocktails out, as Mr. Romney doesn't indulge. However, it's been a long election cycle, and we say it's time for a drink, so feel free to pop a bottle of your favorite bubbly and sip away!
While President Obama geared up for the debates with steak and potatoes, Mitt Romney kept it light and healthy with veggie burgers. We can't be sure what his favorite veggie burger is, but we bet he'd love this vegan Zucchini Quinoa Burger.
I love Champagne and cheese and potato chips. In fact, that would be the most dreamtastic dinner. I have two cats and I am a proud Portlander-by-birth currently residing on Manhattan's rich and wonderful Lower East Side in a closet that has no closets. In May I finished up a masters degree in Food Studies at NYU and now I am trying to figure out exactly why I did that and what that all means. It is very fun and scary but mostly fun. I like to cook and I love to bake.
