The Political Concerns of an Eight Year Old

Driving around my neighborhood, which is one of the bluest enclaves in a blue city in a red state, one sees a lot of Obama signs and a few Hilary signs. I haven't seen a single McCain sign or sticker. I'm not complaining, I don't have any political stuff in my yard or on my car.

My eight year old is starting to notice all these signs though and as we cruised along to the park the other day, he worriedly announced, "Mom, I think Obama might win."

I non-committedly replied that he wasn't even the official candidate yet and one never knows about these things.

"But Mom," he doggedly insisted, "He might win and then taxes would go up and things like Legos would be more expensive."

Truly the mind of an eight year old boy is never far from the important things of the world, like Legos.
