The presidential candidates unleash their Yuletide-themed campaign commercials:

A red-sweatered Giuliani rattles off his gift list for America which includes "secure borders," "strick constructionist judges" and "a really nice fruitcake." The bearded-one himself makes an appearance towards the end of the video.

Huckabee, pitching himself to evangelicals, wants us to forget politics and remember the Christ in Christmas. Bookshelf/cross backdrop sparks minor kerfluffle.

Hillary appears amidst smartly-wrapped and labeled gifts including temporarily waylaid package of "universal pre-k." No sign of Kringle.

The Obama family video postcard featuring father, mother, two adorable daughters, Christmas tree and crackling fireplace. Light on issues; heavy on the sugar plums.

An intensely somber and earnest Edwards yearns for the homeless, the poor, the tired masses, and talks of a “season of miracles, of faith and love.”
