Barack Obama would be a new-ish
Hillary Clinton would be the New York Rangers, not because of the fact that for some reason she represents
John McCain would be the Minnesota Wild or the Colorado Avalanche. Rugged, Western, doesn't give a damn what anyone thinks, always surprises people. Also a true comeback and resurrection story, much like how the Minnesota North Stars disappeared and were replaced by the splendid Wild. Or like Ray Bourque and the Av’s winning the Stanley Cup.
Mitt Romney would be the Ottawa Senators. Slick, over-hyped, overrated, and lacking in anything resembling a soul.
Mike Huckabee would be the Tampa Bay Lightning. Both of them are surpassingly awful in just about every way, though not without star power.
