    My daughter was so overwhelmed with emotion that she cried when then-candidate Obama took the stage at a 2008 rally. She was 9 years old. She didn't understand his policy positions but she was very moved by his charisma and energy. Of course, she also saw the stupidity and discombobulated messages coming from the McCain campaign and was horrified that Sarah Palin was even in the mix.
    Now (with 4 years under her belt!) she is a steadfast and informed supporter. I think it's mostly the human rights & fairness issues that get to her - she watched a lot of the Republican primaries and was grossed out by the "I got mine" attitude that came from the candidates. When Mitt was finally crowned the nominee his summer of lying sent her over the edge.
    We live in a (really) red state and it is amazing to me how many of her classmates are supporters of Democrats - President Obama won her school (500 students) mock election with Mitt Romney getting -0- delegates. Times they are a changing.

    I'm pretty tired of being told what I care about.
