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.
W (wilson)
M (mommy)

M- who do you want to vote for for President of the United States?
W- I am going to vote for Barack Obama!
M- Why?
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!

Wonder what that redneck dude across from Thou Art thinks of the president-elect's name?

I used to think his name was cool, but now, like an overplayed top 20 hit, I'm tired of hearing anything political. Mr. President or President Obama will do fine now.

My son goes around singing his name! I don't think he will ever get tired of it. I do know what you mean- Mr. President sounds good to me now.
Thanks for checking in!

Stumbled over here from Gary's place and just had to laugh because my 5 year old also voted Barack Obama because she liked his name. However in her case it was because it started with a B, just like her name does. Hee hee!

Great minds think alike!
Thanks for checking in- I'm really not usually so political!
