-- If this presidential candidate wins next year, it will be by a whisker.
His name is Limberbutt McCubbins, a registered federal office-seeker — who happens to be a cat.
McCubbins, 17, said the steps to register Limberbutt as a candidate only took her friend a short time to complete.
Being that Limberbutt is a feline, McCubbins said there's no need to beef up his campaign, adding that she's aware her gray tabby may not have much of a shot going far in the race.
"It's just a fun thing to pass the time," McCubbins said. "It's the summer and there's no homework, so we enter our cats in the presidential race."
