Finally! This weekend, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is available for all the world to read. But once you run your grubby little muggle eyes across the 17,000 pages of the book in one 12-hour reading marathon, then what?
Well, if you really need your Harry Potter fix, you can flip on the news, mute the sound, and pretend the candidates are your favorite Rowling characters. After quaffing several flagons of polyjuice potion, here's what we divined…
Al Gore = Hermione Granger
Loveable know-it-all; has grown noticeably "shapelier" over the years
John Edwards = Ron Weasley
Good sidekick, but can he win the quidditch tournament on his own?
Rudy Giuliani = Draco Malfoy
Has a hard time keeping his wand in its sheath
Mitt Romney = Severus Snape
Good or evil, no one knows — either way, could really use some sun
H.R. Clinton = J.K. Rowling
Zillionaire book author
Ralph Nader = Lord Voldemort
Just when you thought you'd seen the last of him…
And now for the final mystery: Who do you think is Harry Potter?

Well, it's all over. Regardless of your opinions on the final minutes of the finale episode — and if you saw it, you probably have strong ones — you have to admit that the show will be missed.
On Friday, we started casting our own version of the Sopranos with characters from the second most controversial thing on television: the upcoming Presidential election. We just couldn't help picking a few more…
Rudy Giuliani = Vito Spatafore
Enjoys kinky role-playing games
Barack Obama = Christopher Moltisanti
Young, not entirely unattractive; history of drug abuse; wishes he was black
John Edwards = Silvio Dante
It's all about the hair
Al Gore = Artie Bucco
Dennis Kucinich = Big Pussy
No explanation necessary
It's hard to say good-bye — take a look at more Sopranos-candidate match-ups we came up with last week. And tell us how you'd cast the show.

This Sunday night, we say goodbye to one of the best shows of all time. Luckily there's still something else on TV that's just as skeevy, violent and offensive: the run-up to the 2008 Presidential election.
If you're really jonesing for your Sopranos fix, just turn down the sound on the news and pretend that each of the candidates is a character from the show. We sat down with a nice plate of gabagol, and tried to decide who would be who. Here's what we came up with…
John McCain = Uncle Junior
Was pretty sharp and virile — before slipping into senility
Hillary Clinton = Phil Leotardo
Has a criminal history; will totally f**k you up if you don't pay respect
Joe Biden = Paulie Walnuts
Will not shut up, and is usually saying something dumb
Mitt Romney = Ralphie Cifaretto
Comes off as nice; may have a dead stripper in his past
Bill Richardson = Bobby Bacala
And now for the big question: Who do you think is Tony Soprano?
