Since we just finished our big presidential primary here in South Carolina, and today is Super Tuesday, I thought I would provide some updates regarding the state of the presidential race from the point of view of our underage family voters. The conversation began at the polls with Mommy on Saturday.
When asked who he preferred, 7-year-old Bryce announced that he was behind Tom Steyer. His four-year-old sister disagreed with his choice, stating that she was an Elizabeth Warren fan. “A girl has never been president. Why wouldn’t you want a girl?” (Wise child!)
On Saturday night, Bryce wandered downstairs from his bedroom to be told that Joe Biden had won South Carolina and that Tom Steyer had dropped out of the race. That was enough for him to pivot to Joe Biden, but not Lily, who would not budge in her support of Senator Warren.
Bryce told her that choosing Elizabeth Warren was a bad choice because “she is not in a good place.” According to him, he heard that from “breaking news.” (Boy, these kids sure are tuned in!)
We discussed this during our Monday afternoon playdate. We showed both of them our pictures from Saturday night, when we attended the Biden South Carolina Primary celebration. While they were both impressed with out Biden sign and photos of the bus, Lily was unwavering.
“Did Elizabeth Warren drop out?” (Keep in mind that this child is FOUR YEARS OLD!!) When I told her that she has not, then she told me that she still likes Elizabeth Warren.
She is a loyal trooper!
