All of this election business has sparked some political conversations amongst my children and other neighborhood kids.
"I want to be President," one little boy said.
"Why?" my daughter asked.
"Because it's cool."
"I'll be Vice President," my daughter said. "Because then I'll be President if something happens to you." Then she added, "I want to make America a better place, too."
Well that's nice.
Then my son got in on the conversation. "I want to be Speaker of the House. Because then I'll be President if something happens to you and you. And I'll make $8,000 a week."
That's what I call thinking like a politician!
