The really wierd thing is that it looks to have put Harry Reid with the republicans.

My best guess at them - On the Democrat side, Forefront is Hillary Clinton, with VP Joe Biden just above her. The blonde lady behind Hillary I suppose could be Elizabeth Warren if you squint, or perhaps Mary Landrieu. The guy on the bottom left kinda looks like Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), and the guy above him I suppose could be Al Franken (D - MN).

On the right hand side (Republicans), John Boehner is obviously front and center, but I'm a bit confused as Harry Reid (D-NV) appears to be behind him? The chin is too prominent for it to be Mitch McConnell, the hair is too thin to be Ron Paul, and the skin is to saggy/emaciated for it to be John McCain. Above-middle sort of resembles tea-party upstart Ted Cruz (R-TX), and left of him is actually a fair representation of Mitt Romney. The only Republican who I can think of who even remotely resembles the guy in the uppermostright is Jim Inhofe (R-OK) but it's not quite right...

Or maybe they just wanted to draw a bunch of white people, and just made 2 or 3 look like someone they'd heard of.
