Just top it all with a healthy layer of cheese. ;-)

If you can find "True Lime" powder. I use that with some white pepper, ginger, paprika, and salt. Spray some oil on first so it sticks.

Copy Michele Obama's recipe and call it your own.

Shape them into a ball and dip in a hard candy mix to make jaw breakers.

I knew when I saw this question I had something to add. This link is from my Pinterest: http://www.seriouseats.com/2012/02/10-fun-toppings-for-popcorn-flavors-seasonings-slideshow.html

Franksredhot is delicious as is the nutritional yeast & cumin.

Brewer's yeast, garlic powder, a touch of cayenne on generously buttered popcorn. I'll save my political views for a more appropriate venue ;-)

For this convention, Plain with large side of Vodka

My favorite is popped in pork lard or beef tallow, tossed with melted ghee and sprinkled with nutritional yeast (sounds weird, but it's better than parm on popcorn) and sea salt.

My mom pops hers in ghee and sprinkles with sea salt.

Before I had to give up popcorn, this was one of my favorite ways to make it.

I like plain, but there are so many variations you can make with different salts (onion, garlic) or chili powder, herbs, Lawry's seasoning, I think there may be one using powdered salad dressing (ranch).

Oh, Sam, you devil!
Choose one for dominant shade of opinion at convention-watching party. Or have a buffet, if you have friends across the spectrum who will be attending and still talk to each other.
1) Hopeful, patriotic, no matter which party:
Various red-white-blue versions, most often in 4th of July picnic features. For example,

others suggest garnishes with white chocolate, red & blue M&Ms etc
2) Mournful, again no matter which party:

3) Interested, undecided and/or just watching the spectacle. Your favorite WITHOUT red-white-blue or black.
your favorite, with butter, caramel, ranch, Parmesan, truffle, etc.
