Eeny Meany Miney Mo

Today is primary day in Ohio and seeing as I am torn between making women's history and making African -American history, I needed a little help making my decision. I enlisted the most unbiased, genuine person I know to make the choice for me. I sat Violet down in front of the computer and posted a picture of each candidate. I asked her to pick one. She immediately pointed to Obama and exclaimed, "That one!" In case you distrust the conviction of a toddler, my husband repeated the experiment later, with different photos and her mind had not changed. "That!", she said and pointed to the senator from Illinois. When a teenage Violet begins to study the historic presidency of Barack Obama, I will tell her that she knew just by looking and maybe she'll get interested in what it takes to make America run.
