Get ready for a new wave of Jacko-mania later this month, the first anniversary of pop star Michael Jackson's June 25, 2009 death. Washington Whispers is getting prepared with the help of our Capitol Bobbles maker, PoliticalWobbles.com. The firm has just issued a new MJ doll in time for many memorials worldwide, prompting this question: Should the White House send a representative to attend any of the events?

Typically, the vice president attends funerals of world leaders, backed up by the secretary of State. But is Jackson so big that the president should attend? Tell us what you think in our new Capitol Bobble's Poll.

Joe Biden, Michael Jackson, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton Bobbleheads for Washington Whispers.

This poll is now closed, but the debate continues in the comments section.

With several memorials planned for Michael Jackson, should the White House send a representative and, if so, who should it be?
