The Morning Grind: Wesley Clark and patriot games 
• The Candidates: Bush | Kerry

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- In the TV entertainment world, the word "new" might as well be synonymous with the word "lame" (i.e. "The New Odd Couple" or "The New Hollywood Squares").

Nevertheless, in presidential politics it's the seasoning of choice for a candidate looking to add spice to an exciting, or more likely, not-so-exciting policy proposal.

Presidents and presidential hopefuls for almost a century, like Madison Avenue, have been peppering their inauguration speeches, State of the Union addresses, and countless campaign names and policy initiatives with that simple, three-letter word, usually to mixed results.

Can you match the president and/or candidate below with his "new" idea? (Some entries have more than one answer.)
