Turkeys have been carving out a special place in American history since 1963. That’s when John F. Kennedy became the first U.S. President to “pardon” a turkey at the White House — a tradition that’s grown to be known as the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation.

Which of two turkeys will be named the 2012 National Thanksgiving Turkey?
