All in a day: My 11-year-old son weighs in on the debate; my oldest daughter shakes FLOTUS' hand

Teen Daughter: "So who won the debate?"

Me (Wanting to offer a fair assessment): "Well, Obama wasn't on top of his game, tonight, but I'm not a Romney fan, so..."

Son (Interrupting, very matter-of-factly): "Romney lied the entire debate, so Obama won. Romney lied a lot."

Now, if the undecided voters here in Reno can be as discerning ...

Earlier today, my college-age daughter and I got to see Michelle Obama! Here is a photo of my daughter from our local newspaper, taking a picture of the FLOTUS. My daughter was so happy because she had the opportunity to shake Mrs. Obama's hand. I saw Mrs. Obama from just a short distance away, and she is so remarkably beautiful and graceful.

Cute daughter....she seemed quite into the moment!

5. Said the 19 year old daughter of a GOP mother --

as the two of us listened on the radio to Romney debating: "I hate his voice. He sounds like a telemarketer. He sounds like one of those people on TV who are always trying to sell something."

Too bad everyone didn't hear him on the radio.
