Breaking: Plush politics

Published on .

Just as politicians pass out coffee and doughnuts to pollsters, McDonald's Corp. is using an election-theme Teeny Beanies promotion to keep customers from voting "No" with their feet. The three-week campaign from Leo Burnett USA, Chicago, begins Oct. 25 and features Lefty the Donkey, Libearty the Bear and Righty the Elephant.
