The cabbage patch White House hopefuls

Four one-of-a-kind Cabbage Patch Kids dolls crafted in the likeness of presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain and vice presidential candidates Joe Biden and Palin are to be auctioned on eBay for charity.

The dolls sport outfits inspired by their counterparts, with the Palin doll wearing the Republican candidate’s signature rimless eyeglasses, red suit and heels.

“These four folks in particular seemed like the perfect candidates, if you will, to become one-of-a-kind Cabbage Patch Kids,” said a spokeswoman for the makers.

“We’ve had a great history with making celebrity lookalikes with these Kids. We’ve done everyone from Elvis to Donald Trump to Ellen (DeGeneres) and Oprah (Winfrey).”

The auction, which begins on Thursday and ends on election day November 4.
