I'm so shocked!

Apparently, President-elect Obama is NOT considering the D.C Public (government) schools as an option for his daughters. Now while I can't blame the Secret Service for telling the incoming President that they really would prefer NOT to try to provide security in such a situation, I do think that any politician who opposes school choice ought to be REQUIRED to send his children (or grandchildren for older pols) to the local government schools. If it's good enough for the poor, it's good enough for politicians.

At the very least, voters ought to remember which politicians work against school choice while sending their children to private and parochial schools, and vote accordingly.

I agree with you except for the "or grandchildren" part. Grandchildren don't send their grandkids to school, just like parents don't "send" their adult children into military service. I would hate for either my parents or my in-laws to think that that is the way it is, even though they are actually supportive of our choices. And for my friends whose parents aren't supportive of their choices -- shudder.

Of course I meant "grandparents" don't send their grandkids to school.

True. I was just thinking that there's got to be SOME way of getting the point across to those in Congress who no longer have children in school. Of course, "refusing to vote for them" is a good start.

You're right. Pretty soon, I'll be just plain electrocuted from all my faux surprise! :^)
