1. You SHOULD be proud!

Your daughter understands what's going on, and is doing what she can to influence history.

Congrats!

13. Thank you, CalPeg.

She really does understand. She is much more aware politically than I was at her age.

2. Congratulations, Mom! You have clearly done something quite right.

And congratulations to your daughter who will be voting for the first time this year.

3. Isn't it great?

My daughter just turned 18 last week.

She says the best thing about turning 18 is she gets to vote today in the WI primaries.

She's a veteran of the big WI Capitol rallies of last year and this.

Congrats on a job well-done.

15. Thank you, postulater.

So your daughter really got to vote yesterday? That is so exciting for her!

I think it's great that she got the chance to attend the rallies up there too. Being involved like that at a young age does so much to influence future activism, not to mention what a blast it is to do together. My older daughter and I participated in the March for Women's Lives in 2004. We got to fly off to DC together and spend a week there attending all these great events and meeting one amazing person after another. It was the best time! Since then she has become quite the activist.

There really hasn't been anything quite as exciting as The March to do with my younger daughter yet (I'm always looking), but we've gone to some great local Planned Parenthood events and election night parties - which she has loved!

4. Not taking anything away from your daughter...

but every young woman should be doing anything they can to re-elect Pres. Obama.

Their future depends on it.... even more than the futures of young men.

The Repubs want control of the uteri of women, and it's the young women who should lead the fight.

Good on her to recognize this fact and act on it!

I had been procrastinating for weeks! You're lucky to have such a responsible daughter!

I have never given one penny to any politician ever.
