3. Technically...
They do have the most to win or lose since any decisions, even national security related, will affect them for a lot longer than any of us.

4. we send 17 year olds to fight our battles so I think they deserve a vote
if I recall it was 8 year old stock footage Hillary used of the girl for her ad and the child is now 17 and of voting and fighting and dying age.

5. That was hardly the point.
But since humor apparently has no place here, are you saying her opinion doesn't count, even though she will be a voter in the GE?

Especially having been used, literally, as poster child for something she does not believe in?

8. I saw the crazy emoticon.
Fail to see your point in pointing that out, though.
Its late here, so I might miss a joke. And if so, I am sorry.

7. She will be 18. In this country 18 year olds can be sent off to die.

So yes, we can let "children" help us make our choices on National Security.

15. I think if we listened more to kids
we'd discover ideas and solutions never imagined possible.

The simplicity of younger people's perspectives is valuable.

13. I'm not sure what you mean by "pick up"
Is it in the video? I can't stream due to slow connection.

Although currently supporting Obama, she is not a Clinton hater by any means.

From the same article:

"Casey would, however, prefer that Hillary, rather than John McCain, answer that 3 A.M. call. She tells King5.com that she'll vote for Hillary in the general should she win the nomination."

14. It wasn't a direct quote
But its pretty much a valid conclusion. :) I assume you have seen the 3AM ad in question. If not, you should. The picking up part should be clear then.

I read the entire aticle too. And yes, she has the priorities straight. Wasn't trying to infer anything like it.

Still funny though.

16. Oh, pick up the phone.
I thought you meant pick up the towels or something.

She did, in fact, say that. I read it in another article.

She and her family found the whole thing amusing.
