Small steps

My mom usually votes for Democrats in all races except for President. My dad usually votes for whoever my mom or I tell him to, except for President. I consider this quite significant considering studies show children are more likely to have the same politics as their parents. I'm an anomaly, obviously.

One politician she absolutely despises is Lt. Gov. Herbert. Last week I casually mentioned to her that IF John McCain wins, he'll most likely appoint Huntsman to some kind of ambassadorship and the Herbert would become Governor. This did not make her happy.

It's still not a reason for her to vote for Obama, but it's a step.
