7-Year Old to Michelle O: Finish what you started in Iraq
I’ll say this much for the Obamas: No one has more interesting political conversations with second-graders than they do. Something for everyone here — for the righties, some easy snark that the correct way to proceed in Iraq is obvious even to grade-school kids; for the lefties, some even easier snark that it takes someone with the mindset of a grade-school kid to think this is the correct way to proceed; and for the nonpolitical among us, a warm and fuzzy moment at the end. A good time was had by all.
Update: A commenter reminds me that the Obama camp is uniquely well positioned to engage seven-year-olds on foreign policy.
