My daughter, 6 years, six months, seventeen days, eight hours and fifty minutes old, got into this conversation with a PTA mom, afterwards, explaining why she voted for McCain:
Daughter: I wanted Hillary to be President but now she can’t be so I voted for Sarah because there has never been a girl President. There have only been boy Presidents.
PTA mom: But Sarah is not running for President, she is running for Vice-President. And you know there has never been an African-American President.
My daughter does not know race. She knows only that people look different. But she sees that she is not connecting and switches arguments.
Daughter: I want to have a paper-route. (She pronounced it “root”). And Obama is going to steal all my money and give it to other people.
