I've already tied Star Trek
into politics here and at Light Up the Darkness, but someone beat me to using Harry Potter. I've been dissatisfied with the traditional left vs. right differentiation between politicians. Live Journal
uses the sorting hat from Harry Potter to do a much better job of dividing up the politicians--in this case by the houses at Hogwarts. John Kerry, along with Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Robert Byrd, Barack Obama, Olympia Snowe, Joe Biden, and Dennis Kucinich are placed in the cerebral Ravenclaw.
