During the recent presidential campaign, we talked a lot about politics at home. A LOT. Abby knew that John McCain was the Republican candidate; she knew that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama duked it out in the Democratic primaries. She knows that Mr. Obama is the 44th President of the United States. She knows that he is the first African American President of our country.

Interestingly, this morning, Abby asked why John McCain wasn’t our new president. I told her that he didn’t receive enough votes to become president.

She paused and considered this information. And asked,

“Mommy, what’s a vote?”
