Geeky Girl for President

Conversation yesterday in the car:

GG: Mom, how do we elect the president?

Me: Well, you know when you go into that booth and vote for people?

GG: Yeah.

Me: Well, whoever gets the most votes wins. We do that for all our elections. (I decide not to discuss the electoral college and other finer election details).

GG: You know what I think? I think the woman will get the most votes.

Me: (Thinking about the pros and cons of Hilary's canidacy): Why?

GG: Because, I think people are bored with having a man be president.
