Mrs. Underdog and I voted last night. We were still trying to decide who we would vote for on the car ride to the voting place and the discussion was pretty depressing. As we were getting out of the car, my 3-year-old, the Linebacker Starter Kit, said "Dad, why don't you vote for Blue?"
"Blue?", I replied.
"Yeah, the dog in Blue's Clues."
"You know, son, that is not a bad idea. Maybe I will."
A few minutes later I stood before the voting screen and stared at the choices before me. There was a button for "Write In Vote." With high hopes, I clicked on that button, desperate that perhaps a cartoon puppy would make my decision simple.
Just Ralph Nader.
I voted, but I didn't like it. Probably because Blue seemed like a better choice than any of the one's on the ballot. At least Blue has a Clue.
