Politicial Prodigy?

I try to keep my mouth shut when it comes to politics, but THIS I could not pass up.

Car talk today....

Ellie: Mom, is it true that McCain will just give us more of the same?

Mom: (after I recover from my surprise)
Not exactly Ellie... followed up by the best explanation I can give to 8 year old ears.

Ellie: Mom, is it true that Obama wants to take away our freedoms?

Mom: (after I again recover from my surprise)
Well, babe, not exactly... followed up by the best explanation I can possibly give her.

After a pause....and with a wistful inflection...
Ellie: I sure wish Honest Abe was still around.

Too cute!! Just that she has been listening to the political conversations is amazing for an 8 year old. It's nice to hear that some kids pay attention to life.
