The Capitol Bobbles, our Internet video feature,  aren't just a hit on YouTube. They're also hot gifts. Jeff Wolsky of our bobble maker politicalwobbles.com says the sales seem to mimic the national preference polls of the candidates we feature at usnews.com/bobbles. Which means that Democrats Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama are tied in sales, and Mike Huckabee is the GOP favorite. Between them, they make up over half of the sales of the Capitol Bobbles, which feature 11 presidential candidates and the four top Hill leaders.

Here's Wolsky's list:
