What It Takes To Be A President

Caleb, the other morning, was busily coloring a picture of George Washington that he’d brought home from school.

“I know why George Washington was the first president,” he said, giving George a green face and brown hair.

“Why?” I asked

“Because he killed almost all the bad guys, of course.”

Let it not be said that my youngest son doesn’t have a nuanced view of history.  You don’t have to get rid of all the bad guys to be president, just most of them.

Someone tell Barack.
