I like his name!
When I was talking to my son Wilson about voting on Tuesday we had an interesting conversation about how to pick the new President.
M- who do you want to vote for for President of the United States?
W- I am going to vote for Barack Obama!
W- Because I like his name!
M- I like his name too, it is a pretty cool name, much better than "George Bush".
W- But I like George Bush's name too!
M- Okay, well that probably isn't the best way to pick a President.
Later that day Wils came home, they had a mock vote at school, and I asked him who won at school?
W- Barack Obama won- lots of people liked his name!
The election process is much more simple through the eyes of a 7 year old!
