Obama vs McCain at Trip to California to Help you Decide

Are you still undecided about which candidate to vote for. If the debates can't help you decide , my travel expert Jane has a suggestion .

Hi Stacy. It’s Jane reporting from your favorite Blue State. I thought this was hilarious and rather clever of a hotel company to come up with. Even if you don’t decide to visit the venerable Homestead – it is so gracious and beautiful. THE perfect spot for the family, I thought it was fun. As always, if your readers need any help in booking or other info, have them email me directly at Happy Voting!!

The Ultimate Straw Poll:

Obama Supporters’ Vacation Package


McCain Supporters’ Vacation Packages-

A Bottle of Red State Wine, With Dinner

California-based KSL Resorts , whose seven iconic American resorts have hosted U.S. Presidents for generations, has announced a series of presidential vacation packages in which guests express their political preference through reservations.

The Obama Supporters’ Vacation package offers excellent value (including a “Buy American” resort credit for retail purchases) and will be affordable for many Americans, though it is subject to higher taxes!

The McCain Supporters’ Vacation package includes a bottle of “Red State” wine and a room-tax credit, among other amenities, and offers excellent “family values.” These two-night presidential packages are available at any KSL Resort.

Of course, they must be “voted on” (reserved) by Election Day, November 4, 2008 and consumed (checked-in) by inauguration day, Jan 20, 2009. KSL is no stranger to Presidential politics.

The KSL Resorts Collection includes such venerable resorts as the Hotel del Coronado, and Beach Village at The Del, in San Diego, which has hosted ten U.S. Presidents, from Benjamin Harrison to George W. Bush since opening in 1888. Twenty-three American presidents have visited The Homestead, in Hot Springs, Virginia, from George Washington to Thomas Jefferson (whose name lives on at the Jefferson Pools) to Bill Clinton. Other resorts in the KSL collection include Barton Creek Resort & Spa, in Austin, Texas, in George W. Bush’s home state, La Costa Resort and Spa, in Carlsbad, CA; Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa, in Rancho Mirage, CA; and Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa, in Vail, CO.
