This article takes a lighter approach to the slate, by applying the wallet test. Evidently the author actually did peruse the contents of Mike Huckabee’s wallet, and concluded that Huckabee is a regular guy. Following that revelation, the author speculates about the wallets of other candidates.
The whole article is funny, but the part about John Edwards is particularly hilarious:
Ask John Edwards what’s in his wallet and I suspect he’ll answer, “You know, my daddy worked in a mill, and his wallet was made of cast-off cotton lint and elbow macaroni.”
Me: “But what’s in your wallet now?
Edwards: “Vidal Sassoon’s cell number and $106,000 in cash.”

The only unusual thing in my wallet (assuming you don’t think a bunch of CVS extra bucks are weird) is a very tiny lipstick. I got two tubes of inch long lipstick samples in a free gift with a makeup purchase once, and I carry one in my wallet in case of emergencies.
And yes, I do think being caught without lipstick is an emergency. Of sorts.
Do you carry anything unusual or particularly self-descriptive in your wallet?
