I answered, and she said, “Mom, you shoulda’ been a teacher, cause you’re only mean, when ya need ta be!” I thought to myself, ‘was that a backhanded compliment, or was I just b-slapped by my daughter?’ So I asked her, “well, what should your Dad have been?'” That little one didn’t even hesitate, when she answered, “he shoulda’ been the President! He’s soooo smart? And he comes up with great ideas all the time?” I said, “that’s a tall order, Cass… it takes a lot of work to be the president.” She turns to me in all seriousness and said, ” how many years do we have Mom, until he can run? I need to start working on his campaign.”
So, I wanted to pass all this on to you, because once I’m in the White House, you’ll have a place to stay, when you’re traveling through DC, and just between you and me? When I was my daughter’s age? I thought my Dad was smart enough to be President too!
OK…who’m I kidding. I still do!
