31. "Mom, I'll have to live with the consequences of this race longer than you."
My mom switched.
She's in her 80's, it may be the last primary vote of her life.
She first said she didn't know enough about Barack. I asked what did she know about Hillary? She responded that she had at least heard of her.
Mom takes advice from me on many things, I didn't need to go over the issues with her, she trusted me.

I was prepared, however, to make this plea: "Mom, I'm going to have to live with the consequences of this race longer than you."
