On Saturday evening, my 11 year-old David announced, I think I'll watch the presidential debates. You will? My husband and I have talked about the upcoming election intermittently (upon telling our 7 year-old the basics of the democratic and republican platforms, she's already declared herself an Independent), but presidential politics isn't really part of our everyday patter. Until yesterday. Perhaps because early Friday morning, with the country astir over the Iowa caucuses, I thought -- wouldn't it be fun to attend a Mitt Romney town hall in advance of the New Hampshire primary, and wouldn't it be fun if David went with me. I'd never been to a political rally, neither had he, why not make this whole presidential campaign more tangible?
