It's heartening to me that there is a chance that the first President of the United States that Ben would ever know about could be Barack Obama.
As a contrast, the first president I knew of was Richard Nixon. How's that for the early shaping of one's political consciousness? I vaguely remember the televised Watergate hearings and footage of Nixon boarding the helicopter after his resignation.
It's likely, however, that during the first years of a hypothetical Obama presidency, Ben may be under the impression that DJ Lance of Yo Gabba Gabba is actually in charge of the country.
My fellow Americans...let's do a dance to get our wiggles out!
