Earliest political memory of the day #48

epm-48In kindergarten I vividly remember sitting in a circle and listening as each student had the chance to tell the class who they would vote for in the 1988 US Presidential election. Of course I’m sure each of us relayed the candidate that our parents were voting for, but the reason I remember it so clearly is that this was a private Christian school (and therefore pretty religious and conservative) and shockingly, a student at the end of the circle said that he would vote for Dukakis. After hearing “Bush” so many times, the “Dukakis” made quite an impression.
