FishbookDC Class of 2009: Early Projections

Most Likely to be a Headline
After all these years, Cox still rocks your socks. Air America’s Ana Marie Cox is devastating the competition with almost 60% of the vote.

Most Ambitious
Early projections show that this one is going to come down to ABC golden boy, Jake Tapper and boy wonder Tommy McFly of Mix 107.3. Tapper’s got Tommy by 10% but we’ve got 24 hours of voting to go.

Most Mysterious
Dave Hughes aka “DCRTV Dave” is dominating this category with a strong lead and good voter turnout. Well played, Dave.

Most Likely to Join the Administration
No surprises here. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews & HuffPo’s Nico Pitney have remained in a dueling lead.

Most Competitive
Only I can see the actual vote count but it’s pretty pathetic for a category honoring allegedly “competitive” journos. A few votes could swing this election either way. For now, WaPo’s Chris Cillizza and Politico’s Glenn Thrush are nearly tied up. That said, if we don’t see some action soon, we’ll be forced to rename the category “All Talk and No Walk.”

Biggest Rebel
Only 5% of the vote separates rebellious writers John Stanton of Roll Call and Julie Mason of the Examiner.

Hardest Working
Voters are working overtime for CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Roll Call’s Shira Toeplitz. These two have led the pack all day. For now, Blitzer’s got first place but it’s still anyone’s game.

Class Clown
CQ’s Craig Crawford came out of nowhere to take the lead over WaPo’s Dana Milbank and TPM’s Matt Cooper but there are no winners yet. A little campaigning or a good practical joke could tip the scales in any clown’s favor.

Biggest Heartthrob: The Ladies
Oh my goff! It’s a battle royale between WUSA-9′s Angie Goff and CNN’s Brianna Keilar but for now, Goff’s in the lead.

Biggest Heartthrob: The Guys
NBC’s resident hunk, Luke Russert has held on to first place but a good showing from supporters of WaPo’s Dan Zak and CQ’s Phil Mattingly are keeping things interesting.

Cutest Couple
NPR’s Geoff Bennett & HuffPo/People’s Beth Perry are leading with 25% of the vote but the competition is fierce. CNN’s dynamic duo John King & Dana Bash, TWT’s Sonny Bunch & Roll Call’s Elizabeth Brotherton and Bloomberg’s Tim Burger & Examiner’s Kiki Ryan are hot in pursuit.

You can vote for your favorites in every category after the jump.

Vote Now: FishbookDC 2009′s “Most Mysterious”

Hmmm…this is a tough one because most of the nominees aren’t so mysterious to us. We can only assume that the mystery prompting Mike Allen‘s nom is his ability to blackberry in his sleep. So our money is on DCRTV Dave… unless we can write in FamousDC?!
