To be fair, her newest creation has just as much substance as the Democratic frontrunner:
Ever wonder what presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama would look like in the Oval Office? Well, look no further than Madame Tussauds wax museum in Washington, D.C. to catch a glimpse of what may be the nation's political future. While "Hail to the Chief" played in the background, a wax figure of Illinois senator, standing behind the desk in the museum's replica of the Oval Office and flanked by wax figures of the Clintons and Kennedys, was unveiled Monday morning.

The figure of Obama is standing with his arms crossed, wearing a black suit and smiling broadly. To his right, figures of his Democratic rival Sen. Hillary Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton. To Obama's left, figures of another first family that graced the Oval Office, former president John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy.
