Political ads at Christmas

Yesterday morning, Fox TV showed some of the advertisements created by the political frontrunners that have been airing in different places across the country. The ads were tied to the holiday season and ranged from just the politician, to showing the politician's family and including them in saying greetings to the public.

What really jumped out was which ones were saying Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays to the public, or thanks for supporting them, and which ones thought this was a good hook to just push more of their election platform. There was an attempt to include some humor, too — in some cases it worked, in some it didn't.

Has anyone seen any of these ads? If so, what did you think? Did it influence you in any way? Or did it turn you off any of the political contenders?

Bonus question: Which person promised to send fruitcake to everyone?
