Youthful thoughts; the new vanguard


My daughter is very excited about her first presidential election. She is most excited about the prospect of a new order. She thinks that Barack can energize the new generation and get them excited about politics. When she is not helping cook biscuits and cornbread with our latest new idea, she is telling me how these old world orders don't work. In my kitchen, we be cookin good stuff and talkin politics....which is sometimes a challenge with one of those straight A salutatorian types...little ms. scholarship. Throw in an opinionated wife..we gots ourselves some lively discussion...From what I see down here, the young folks are voting Obama....what are your kids thinking??? PS, ms. smart kid may be influenced by her daddy just a bit..go blue.

this is the first election for my eldest, too, and she seems to be leaning toward Obama. I am glad to see her excited about politics, but sometimes, I regret teaching her to talk. We don't talk too much politics in our house, because we are a split household - two different parties, conservative and liberal-ish.

My remaining son, not yet old enough to vote, has finally realized that I'm a sage.... parsley, rosemary, and thyme... all the "blue" herbs.
