ALAMEDA, CALIF. — Ever felt like biting off John McCain's head? How
about Barack Obama's? On the other hand, would you like to break bread
at your own table with your favorite U.S. presidential candidate?

It's your choice,
thanks to the musings of bread baker Julien Wagner and Feel Good Bakery
owner Mark Kellner, the minds behind Obama and McCain breads.

While
the political duo continue to knock heads for the remainder of the
campaign, you can purchase a loaf of Obama and a loaf of McCain, made
fresh at Feel Good Bakery in Alameda's Marketplace on Park Street.

been selling at the rate of about four a day — with Obama in the lead,
Kellner said. | FULL STORY
