Regular readers will know that I am not greatly impressed by the first-born=conservative, later born=rebel view of birth order. Nevertheless, my kids were eager to vote after hearing that they could do so at the Nickelodeon website. The six year old was strongly in favor of George Bush, “because a new President will change the laws and I want to keep the same laws.” The three year old said, “I didn’t used to like John Kerry but now I do. John Kerry! John Kerry! John Kerry!”
Of course, the two kids then got into a fight.
