Forget 26.2 or 13.1. Try .10 or .05 if you want to participate in a race without months (or even minutes) of training.

The Political Cartoon: These Five Candidates Await Your Vote.

Nothing is quite as tantalizing to many cartoonists as a visual-heavy news story that lacks audio. Such a story just begs for sharp-witted satirists to fill in the blanks.

As President-elect Obama visited the White House last week, viewers got plenty of images -- but most of it played out as if someone had hit the mute button. Thankfully, smart cartoonists -- such as the five below -- have their own creative remote-controls.

Of the hundreds of cartoons we culled through on the transition of power, these were our Fave Five. Now it's your turn: Which cartoonist best nailed it?

Matt Davies (The Journal News)

Steve Benson (The Arizona Republic)

Robert Ariail(The State [S.C.])

Lisa Benson (WPWG)

John Trever (The Albuquerque Journal)

Editor's Note: Our apologies -- we included the wrong Lisa Benson cartoon earlier today. This version has been corrected.
