Sixteen years ago, when I was in the first grade, I got my first real taste of presidential politics. It was the election between Al Gore and George W. Bush. I wanted nothing more in the world than to see Al Gore become the next president of the United States. I don’t really know why I cared so much, but as a young child the choice of president seemed like the most important thing in the world. I used to refer to Bush as “George Idiot Bush.” I was a strange child.
