My kids, all three of them, are really big fans of President Obama.
It has nothing to do with their political affiliation, mind you, considering they are all 8 and under.
My 7- and 8-year-olds got to meet him and shake his hand when he was running for president back in ’08, and, from then on, he could do no wrong.
I get it.
When I was a kid, former Mississippi Gov. Bill Waller was really nice to me and even let me get into the helicopter he had been riding in. He would’ve taken me for a ride had my mother not stepped in.
As far as I was concerned, Gov. Waller was the coolest guy on the planet, regardless of his politics.
