This morning on the way out the door, my two daughters told me that there was going to be a mock election at their school today. I asked, "Are you voting Barr or Baldwin?" My oldest daughter said something to the effect, What if they don't have the third-party losers on the ballot? I explained that according to that line of reasoning only one candidate should be on the ballot because it does not appear that McCain has a chance either.
Anyway, on the ride home tonight, I was told that, sure enough, they did not have any "third-party losers" on the ballot. The kids could only vote for Obama or McCain. I gather my kids' school used some national Internet school mock election site.
