Barbie for President

Forget platforms, and especially platform shoes, for a moment. Convention Barbie is in town and she's wearing a red dress, big hair and, of course, high heels. Mattel is distributing the special-edition dolls to 5,000 delegates and dignitaries in Philadelphia, and plans to distribute a blue-suited version to Democratic delegates at their convention in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Mattel is selling Candidate Barbie this year, a perky presidential hopeful with great fashion sense--and no doubt some interesting ideas on Middle East policy.
