Recently at the dinner table, newly 4-year-old Owen announced, apropos of nothing at all, "I'm voting for John McCain!"
This remark floored us - he's four - also, we are Democrats who feel like the last 8 years have been worse than the fabled Reagan years. Owen continued:
"Mom, you're voting for Hillary Clinton. And Luke, you're voting for Barack Obama. And Daddy, you're voting for....
Long pause, while we all tried to figure out who Daddy would be voting for.
"... George W. Bush!"
As if. But how steeped in politics is a kid who can name all the major players in politics right now? Think we maybe talk about this just a bit too often at the dinner table?
