This seems highly appropriate for a blog called Caffeinated Politics!
I would suspect that coffee might be a drink of choice often on the campaign trail, if not for the candidates themselves, then surely for the campaign staffers. Now there is word that blends of coffees have been made for the candidates…..well most of them.
They’re roasting presidential candidates on Bill Hill, which is not nearly the same as grilling them.
Ashlawn Farm Coffee has introduced an Obama Blend, a “sweet, balanced” combination of “dark and light roasted coffees from Kenya, Java and the Americas,” and American Hero Coffee, “a light-roasted, highly caffeinated” brew that’s “edgy, strong,” made from beans grown in Vietnam. The latter’s redolent, you might say, of Sen. John McCain.
But what about a Hillary Brew?
That, says Carol Dahlke, Ashlawn co-owner and roaster, is … uh … in development.
“She doesn’t really lend herself to her own coffee blend,” Dahlke says of Sen. Hillary Clinton, who trails Sen. Barack Obama in the race for the Democratic nomination. “If she’s still in it after Pennsylvania (site of an April 22 primary), we’ll have to come up with something. … I’ve had no divine inspiration.”
