Tales From the City

Blue and red friends

Can kids of Romney voters be friends with Democrats?

I talk about current events and politics frequently with my 10-year-old daughter. Recently, I discovered that she talks politics with her friends, too, when she returned from a play date dismayed. She told me that her friend’s family was Republican and her parents had voted for Mitt Romney. She wondered if they could still be friends. I assured her that Democrats and Republicans could be friends, and I reminded her that one of my good friends is a Yankees fan. Her response: “Oh, Mama, that is way worse than voting for Romney!”
