So what is it with all these little girls crushing on Hillary?
This morning on the subway I stumbled on a conversation with a 13-year old black girl who was proudly wearing a giant Hillary button on her denim jacket. After further questioning she admitted a) her parents love Obama, b) her classmates love Obama c) she likes Obama but she likes Hillary better.
Why? She’s alway admired Hillary. Why? No reason, just personal preference. Health-care? A possibility.
I figure those underage wannabe-voters are just joining their peers in what is turning into a major high-school prom queen contest.
But I still can’t understand how kids pick a candidate to root for. Is their desire purely rooted in obstinacy? My kid sister insisted on being the Hillary ‘it’ girl in our family. She went so far as to go to a Hillary rally and (gulp) shake Chelsea Clinton’s hand.
Girl power? That’s what my mom says.
It’s still funny to see all those little teenage rebels out there. Peace lil’uns.
