If The Presidential Candidates Were 'Peanuts' Characters, Bernie Sanders Would Be Such An Adorable Grandpa

There are currently a whopping 21 candidates from both parties vying for the Oval Office. While a lot of them have similar views and political agendas, they each have their own unique personality quirks, just like the characters in Peanuts. There are quite a few Charlie Browns in the bunch, who won't give up no matter how poorly they're doing, while Donald Trump is obviously the cranky Lucy of the group and Hillary Clinton closely resembles the ever-confident Snoopy. So when you discover a website which lets you create custom characters modeled on the art style of the famous comic strip and cartoons, you just have to turn all the presidential candidates into Peanuts characters.

The difficult part about this process is that most of the candidates are middle-aged white guys who look pretty similar. Luckily, the Peanuts character generator let's you customize their clothes as well, so their personalities can be expressed through their style. Younger, hipper candidates would dress more casually, older politicians would be more put-together, and — just like in the election — some candidates would be wild cards. Sadly, there was no Snoopy or Woodstock option.

If the 2016 election was a Peanuts cartoon, here's what each of the presidential candidates would look like.


Hillary Clinton

What would Clinton's character wear besides a pantsuit?

Bernie Sanders

Sanders would make an adorable cartoon grandpa.

Martin O'Malley

O'Malley would try to look hip, but his grey hair would give him away.

Lincoln Chafee

Chafee would be one of the extra characters who just dances in the background.

Jim Webb

Webb's character would try really hard to fit in with the popular kids.

Joe Biden (?)

Biden would obviously be the cool guy at school. I mean, look at that leather jacket.


Jeb Bush

Bush's character would constantly live in the shadow of his cartoon dad and brother.

Ben Carson

Carson would, of course, be the doctor.

Chris Christie

Christie's Peanuts character would be really, really loud.

Ted Cruz

Cruz would be a shy kid who just wants to be friends with Charlie Brown.

Carly Fiorina

Fiorina's character would start out as a loser, but gradually become one of the popular girls at school.

Mike Huckabee

Huckabee wouldn't fit in anywhere, and the other presidential characters would make fun of his shorts.

Donald Trump

Trump's Peanuts character would be a rich kid who doesn't know how to play with others.

Rand Paul

Paul would be a little bit of a bully.

Marco Rubio

Rubio would be one of the younger kids who mimics whatever the big kids do.

Scott Walker

Walker's Peanuts character would be a very strict dad who doesn't want his kids playing football.

John Kasich

Kasich's character wouldn't have any lines.

Lindsey Graham

Graham's Peanuts character would start out really shy and awkward, but unexpectedly become the class clown.

Bobby Jindal

Jindal would also be a bully, but he and Paul wouldn't work together.

George Pataki

Pataki would be the cartoon grandpa who always talks about his glory days.

Rick Santorum

Santorum would be so patriotic that he'd only ever wear red, white and blue.

Jim Gilmore

Gilmore's character wouldn't even make the cut to appear in the cartoon. But he would sure try to get in.
