Standing In Her Shoes For a Moment

Scarlett's latest show includes one perk: a really good car pool. It was my turn to drive last night and a red light landed us behind a Hilary! bumper sticker.

One of the two 15-year olds in the van--sharp, funny, African-American, and from a family with the tiniest toehold into the middle-class--said, "Oligarchy."

Me: "What?"

"Isn't that what we'll have," she asked, "if Hilary wins? Two rich, white families running the country--maybe the world--for how many years?"

My Obama inclination just dug a little deeper.
