A week ago today was election day. At school, one of my students asked me, “Mrs. K, who do you think will be President tonight?”
“Obama will,” I replied. “Regardless of how the election turns out, tonight Obama will be President.”
The student looked confused.
“The President isn’t inaugurated until January,” I explained.
“Oh,” she said.
When I told the social studies teacher the story, he just sighed and shook his head.
