Political cartoonists have a new crop of presidential candidates to caricature. Melissa Block talks with Jack Ohman, political cartoonist for The Oregonian, and Kal Kallaugher, whose cartoons appear in The Economist, about the challenges of drawing Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain. They identify qualities for each that make them fun to caricature.
