If Clinton is Chips & Salsa, Obama Must be a Taco

LatinaLista — During Hillary Clinton’s campaign swing through Nevada last month, she spent part of one afternoon in a Mexican restaurant munching chips.

According to Dr. Alan Hirsch, director of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, it’s natural that Clinton would be eating chips because they match her personality traits.
Dr. Hirsch, in conjunction with Qdoba Mexican Grill, has issued a report for Valentine’s Day matching certain personality traits with different Mexican foods. The report is meant for helping to predict romantic matches.
And isn’t a presidential campaign the ultimate love match there is?
So with that in mind, and according to Dr. Hirsch’s findings, there’s no better indication of Clinton’s outcome for her bid for the White House.

In Dr. Hirsch’s assessment, people who eat chips and salsa are:

People (who) are aggressive, successful, achievement-orientated, and natural leaders. Intolerant of defeat, those who prefer chips and salsa will not take “no” for an answer. Competitive, ambitious, self-assured, they are decisive and persuasive at work, whereas in romance they are charming. They can become impatient with the myriad vicissitudes of life. Avoid going against a chips and salsa lover, for those who go against them could be in for a fight. Some examples of this personality include: Vanessa Williams as Wilhelmina in Ugly Betty, Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestley in The Devil Wears Prada, or Nicholas Cage as Jack Campbell in The Family Man. Chips and salsa people are most romantically compatible with others who also prefer chips and salsa.

After reading the other food choices: burrito, taco, quesadilla, taco salad and nachos, I would say that Obama is a taco kind of guy:

Taco: People who prefer tacos are conscientious and perfectionists and are ideal workers. On the job they take over, accomplishing monumental tasks. They are the master of their domain and can become so engrossed in work that they are often forced to sacrifice time with family and friends. Some examples of this personality include: John Turturro as Sid Lidz in Unstrung Heroes, America Ferrera as Betty Suarez in Ugly Betty, Larry Linville as Major Frank Burns in the series MASH, and Tony Randall as Felix Unger in The Odd Couple. People who prefer tacos are most romantically compatible with those who prefer quesadillas.

The only food group missing, and we do count it as food, is the jalapeño.
I would say both have a dash of it.

    Hey, my favorite is enchiladas. I wonder why they weren’t included in the Mexican food choices?
