That's a question that Uno Chicago Grill, a Boston-based chain of more than 200 restaurants, felt compelled to answer.
Critics have carped that Obama projects a sheen so dazzling that it can be hard to determine whether there is any beef behind all that radiance.
But Uno Chicago didn't stint on the substance in seeking to express the Obama persona in culinary form.
"Since Senator Obama traces his career roots to Illinois, where Uno originated in Chicago, his legacy would be a Chicago Deep Dish Pizza," Uno said in its release. "The Obama Pizza also has a hint of audacity to it, so we suggest a liberal layering of pepperoni to add bite and round out the ticket, delivering a taste you can sink your teeth into. However, if you're not a fan of pepperoni, don't be afraid to change your topping ... after all, the Obama pizza is all about change."
It's good to see that despite some recent challenges, Uno retains its sense of humor.
And what about the pizza sensibility of Obama's Republican rival?
"The McCain Pizza is a no-nonsense, straight talker, so we start by piling on the basics with an extra helping of cheese - perhaps, but not necessarily, of the aged variety," Uno's release said. "But the McCain Pizza is also a maverick, which is willing to function in a bipartisan manner, so there's room here both for meat (pepperoni and sausage) and veggies (green pepper and mushroom). Finally, we add a helping of onions that some will insist is 'not truly conservative,' but which will undoubtedly deliver a surge of flavor and drive out the menacing forces of blandness."
