Micah and I had our first political conversation the other day. We don't really discuss politics in our house. Probably b/c Jason is studying theology and that doesn't leave much time for conversations about much else. And we haven't discussed our political views with Micah. At all.
The conversation was initiated by him and was based solely on his observations. I think his observations are quite revealing.
M: Who's Barack Obama
Me: He's one of the men who's running for president of the United States.
M: Who else is running?
Me: A man named John McCain. Where did you here about Barack Obama?
M: On TV. They keep saying the name Barack Obama. Who's the other guy again?
Me: John McCain.
M: I think Barack Obama is going to win the election.
Me: Why do you think that?
M: Because he's always on TV, like on the news, and everyone is cheering for him. And they keep saying the name Barack Obama.
Regardless of my political persuasion, I think he's quite astute in his observation of the media.
