As it looks like Senator Barack Obama will be our next president, I thought I'd share a conversation Jabberwock and I had earlier this evening while watching the votes come in.
Jabber: Wooo! Barack Obama!
Me: So if you were voting, who would you vote for?
J: Barack Obama!!!
Me: Why do you like him?
J: Because...he has a good name. He also just seems like a good guy. AND I like the way he looks.
Me: What do you like about the way he looks?
J: I like it that he has a black face. Isn't that just really interesting that some people have black faces and some people have white faces? (this is the first time I have heard him say a single thing about race, btw)
Me: You would like to see a black man become president.
Me: Well, it's not really a good enough reason to vote for him, just because you like the color of his face, though, right?
J: Well, I also don't really agree with what John McCain stands on.
Me: What he stands on?
J: Yeah. Like, when he stands on a rock overlooking the river. That's like...weird. And he says he won't fall, but I don't know. He's awful old.
