Ainsley's 1st Political Rally


I'm taking the kids to see their first former-President/future first-gentleman (is that the male derivative of First Lady?) today!

Yes, that would be Bill Clinton!

It is thrilling to me that I will have the opportunity to vote for the first female Presidential Candidate.

Taking the daughter out of school for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

What is more empowering than democracy? Nothing.

Very exciting. I hope it will make her feel like politics is accessible to her throughout her life. I hope she'll always feel like her voice counts. I hope to instill in her a sense of power and responsibility in democracy.

I saw Bill interviewed on tv and he said he likes the term "First Mate". Kinda catchy.

They all sound kind of silly - First Lord? First Gentleman? First Spouse? First Mate just stirs up memories of Gilligan's Island for me though.

Depending on the age of your daughter, I highly recommend that you rent the movie, "Iron Jawed Angels" to watch together. It is an inspiring account of the fight to empower women and ensure that they have the right to vote.

Now that I think about it he'll always be entited to the title Mr. President. We'll probably refer to them as Madam President and Mr. President. Or would it be Ms. President?
