Well, She WAS Born In Washington...

To our surprise, the kid said she wanted to skip story time last night to watch a few minutes of the presidential debate with us. She ended up watching intently for almost an hour on our bed before she finally fell asleep.

Then this morning, when my wife went into her room, the first thing she wanted to talk about was the debate. When asked which one she thought she liked better, she said, "I liked them both about the same." Beat. "But I think Obama was better at choosing a vice president."

Wife: "You know the vice presidents are going to debate next week. I'm really looking forward to that."

Kid: "I'm really looking forward to that, too."

If only the American public were as contemplative as your elder daughter...

Wow. I tried to get my daughter to watch (she's two and a half), but that didn't go so well.

That's amazing. I love hearing about kids' interest in politics. Today I'm headed to deliver some Barack Obama "I Need a Change" onesies that I made to a Lemonade Stand for Obama run by an 8-year-old.

When's she going to start blogging at the Huffington Post?

PS- when I was about 10, I remember handing out "Impeach Nixon" stickers at Broadway and 96th. He picked a great Vice-President, too.
