"We're for Obama, we're for Obama," Gray Specter and John Hodges chanted to a WRAL camera lens Monday night at UNC. They acknowledged as mere adolescents they were not yet old enough to vote, but they planned to vote in their school election.
My second grader came home from school the other day with a list of reasons why she likes Hillary Clinton. They were surprisingly similar to the reasons she like "American Idol" contestants, but nonetheless I was intrigued by her interest at such a young age in the election. The list included the fact that Clinton would be the first woman president, but more importantly, that her first name is "Hillary," the same name of my daughter's best friend in dance class.
The good news is that every time a rising star gets voted off of "American Idol" my daughter quickly switches her allegiance to another contestant with very little effort, so I think she'll be okay no matter who gets the nomination. Sounds a little bit like politics, doesn't it?
