Barack who???

     C has always been interested in money. He loves coins, bills and anything having to do with them, which is why he became interested in Presidents. He wanted to know who the guys were on the money, so we bought him a President card deck. He learned their names, where they were born, which number President they were, what their nickname was, and he knew their faces. This happened within the span of a week when he was 4. He was utterly addicted, and even though he can’t recite that list with complete accuracy any longer, he is still quite interested in the old guys.

     Several years ago, when Hillary Clinton started making noise about running for President, along with John McCain, C decided they should run together on the same ticket. That dream for him has died (although I suppose anything could happen at this point), but the other day, he walked with Husband to get the mail. Barack Obama’s picture was on the cover of some news magazine, and C asked who he was. He came running back to tell me that “Barack Mogana is going to be the next President!”

    The child has spoken. Print up the new card, please.
