Politics...and the Middle

Me: So.... who should I vote for tomorrow?

Middle: For what? President or something?

Me: Yes, President. (or something.. I guess)

Middle: Well, I don't really know. What are their names again.. Rock Obama? and... McCain?

Me: You got it. Rock is a silly name, dontcha think?

Middle: Maybe he's named after a special rock? I don't know much about them.

I know they both have hair.... and suits.
Oh and give speeches about being safe and healthy.

You're good at this. I think you should go vote.

Middle :
Um, I'm just a kid. I can't even drive, and they talk about gas prices. Like if you go to 7-11, and gas cost one hundred dollars, they will lower the gas to one or two dollars. So you can afford it.

Me: Wow, You're one smart cookie. And you are very right. About all of that.

They live in D.C. Washington. I think you should vote for McCain.

So I should vote for John?

Middle: *giggle* That's his real name?

Yeah, just John, Not fred or anything. What did you think his name was?

I don't know. Can we talk about something else? Like solids, liquids and gas?

I'm impressed.
I think we will be filling out her application to Harvard tomorrow.
