Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer.

Yesterday, it seemed like the White House was hosting a Thanksgiving Hunger Games. Americans were asked to decide which turkey tribute, Caramel or Popcorn, will be the National Thanksgiving Turkey. The loser's fate was unclear. But this isn't Panem. Both will be pardoned. Only one gets to take the title.

So Caramel, Popcorn - may the odds be ever in your favor.
