Look at these pics I took this morning. He insisted on wearing my Obama cap to school today. I would have been kind of worried about him offending the kids, except he took a poll yesterday and every single kid in his class “is voting for Obama.” Every. single. one.
OK. Except one who declared “both.” Clearly the rebel of their class.
I have a total political-freak-in-training on my hands.
But the boy wasn’t always so intellectually engaged.
Just this past weekend he seriously asked me the difference between Obama and McCain.
“No, really, Mama. What is the difference between them?”
Which lead to a long and detailed discussion on a 1st grade level about the economy, health care, the war, the environment and various other subjects. I am not joking. I kept trying to give him one-liners but he really wanted to know the deets.
In the end he said, “I agree with Obama. I would vote for him.”
