All night last night Jackson and Shaylee kept asking, "did our guy win?" They are 8 and 6 years old. I know they don't fully understand and I try to explain it as simple as possible.

I don't really care how they will vote or what party they vote for. I just want them to be plugged in, productive, and part of a great process.

Is this to young to start talking to them about our political process?
