Barack Obama and Sarah Palin may yet face each other in the 2012 election, but until then, they'll have to be content sharing
a chocolate malt in the November issue of "Archie". That's right, Obama and Palin (the latter a "noted politician," according to the indispensable Archie Comics press release) will be descending on Riverdale in an attempt to swing a particularly contentious student council election. It's a two-part issue, so you'll actually have to wait until December to find out what happens, although we can only assume a third-party candidacy by self-funder Jughead plays a major role.
