After dinner he asked if we could turn the TV on to watch the results.
As I was trying to impress a bit on wisdom on my little man; our conversation went something like this:
Me: Let's pretend a state like Michigan has 10,000 votes. And then let's pretend that that Obama wins most of the popular vote...then he'll win say about 10 of the Electoral College votes.a few moments later...
Will: You mean 16?
Me: Uh. Sure. Definitely 16.
Me: Now some states have more people in them then other states. So they get more Electoral College votes than other states might. Like...and after I double checked his stat...
Will: California? They have 55.
Me: Yup. Exactly (what I was going to tell you after I looked it up).
Me: And the candidate...Exactly.
Will: ...has to win 270 votes from the Electoral College to be the next President.
Glued. To. The. Television.
As for me...I am most interested in watching the Empire State Building change colors.
