There's a new candidate in the race for the White House. We're not quite sure of her political affiliation, but we can report that she's tall, blonde and made of plastic. She's Barbie! "Have you dolls heard? I'm running for President! Between my family and friends, all of you dolls, and my fab new outfit, I'll be standing on my own like never before! Join the B Party to follow my glam-paign!" Barbie wrote on Facebook.
Barbie made her announcement to coincide with The White House Project’s EPIC Awards -- as she puts it on her tumblr blog, "an a-mazing event that honors women and celebrates women’s leadership accomplishments." Barbie adds, "I’m standing on my own feet like never before, so be sure to visit my glam-paign headquarters often, and show your support for the B Party in 2012!"
Of course, the announcement comes with the presale of a new doll -- the I Can Be ... President Barbie doll, which will hit shelves by August and come in four different races: Caucasian, Hispanic, African-American and Asian, according to The New York Daily News. Presidential Barbie wears sensible wedges -- but of course, her business suit is pink. Do you find her glam-paign inspiring? Or ridiculous?
