To prove that you are the true first lady is also an art. At the time, when men Barack Obama and his opponent MITT Romney was busy with the election campaigning, their wives competed in the culinary skills. According to the tradition which for 20 years, the wives of the presidential candidates in the US, bake cookies, and the audience determines whose cookies taste better. For 20 years, Family Circle magazine asks potential first lady to share his signature recipe baking, and the readers — to choose the winner. The organizers admitted that this year was an incredibly hard contest: "the Winner from the loser were separated by only 287 votes." For all time of existence sweet "debate" only once — in 2008 — the magazine was wrong. In 2008, Michelle Obama with their lemon cookies lost the wife of John McCain, who made a cookie with butterscotch, but this time her cooking skills appreciated. For cookies with walnuts, milk, mint and white chocolate voted 51.5% of voters. Color cookies with candy M&M and oatmeal from Anne Romney behind by only 278 votes. In all other cases, the results of the readers ' vote coincided with a presidential election. In other words, if the wife won that cook-off, the husband was in the White house. So this time the prediction came true.
