An excerpt from a conversation with my seven-year old after his school's mock presidential election.
My son: Mom, Jackson said he was voting for Obama because he's African-American and he'd be the first African-American president.
Me: And why did you vote for Obama?
My son: Becasue he's smart.
From the mouths of babes, people.
Don't forget to vote tomorrow (like that's really an option this year!) and tune in for the Meltingpot's perspective from life inside a swing state. I'll be posting throughout the day tomorrow. I've refrained from talking politics until now, so I'm going to let loose tomorrow. Did anyone else bake cookies for voters who have to stand in line? What are you doing to celebrate election day?
Peace and Democracy!
