Wise Words from an 11 Year Old

On the way to work this morning, my niece asked me who I wanted to be the next president.

I told her that I liked Senator Barack Obama. She said that she liked Senator Hillary Clinton.

We discussed the two (I love how she's taken an interest in politics at such an early age), and then she said to me, "It would be great for either of them to win. We need a woman or an African American as president."

"Why is that?", I asked.

"Because the old white men have messed everything up!"

Amen, sister, amen.
