Just a quick "out of the mouth of babes" type of story:
My daughter, Reagan, and I were on our way grocery shopping. As we passed the barage of political signs on the way she asked if I was voting for Gillibrand or Sandy Treadwell. Not having given much thought to it, I said probably Gillibrand. She said, "yeah, i dont like Sandy Treadwell". She's nine! Then she goes on to say that she wants Gillibrand, Obama and Sarah Palin. Realizing she is unaware about the pairing of running mates I explain. She is now unhappy with the realization that her two favorites are impossible. To this, I explain that she is probably the only person who could be considered to be in a Win/Win situation on November 4th. The fact that she is supporting Sarah Palin only points up that the spirited, demonstrative, spit fire of a daughter I am raising will probably be able to add feminist to her bio in a few years! As my grandfather said: I hope she never loses her spark.
