The president elect is Barack Obama. I am sure this isn't breaking news as most of us heard it last night. But I had to blog about how excited I was for Noah. He really wanted Mr. Obama to win. Now, whether I agree with him or not is not the issue. We try not to sway our children either way but raise them to be independent critical thinkers. I must say the passion that Noah had about Barack was amazing. He was a little confused about his position on the war. I think Noah's biggest concern these days is global warming. He is so passionate about animals - and just when I think he can't become anymore engulfed in them he surprises me.
After leaving Target last night while still in the car Noah yells from the back seat
"Vote Barack Obama - Save the Polar Bears"
I can't wait until he is 18 and can exercise his right to vote - it truly is a privilege to live in this great country.
