Name That Candidate

Name That Candidate - New York Times: "Rhyme is not my only one; I am also intensely interested in meter. I happen to be a deadline poet, responsible for commenting on the events of the day in verse. Someone in my position tends to see Ross Perot and John McCain as two peas in a pod — blessedly iambic candidates with nearly unlimited rhyming possibilities."

Calvin Trillin is the author, most recently, of "A Heckuva Job: More of the Bush Administration in Rhyme."
