President Hess 

Maddie's second grade class did an assignment in which they wrote about what they would do if they were President of the United States. Here are her responses (original form elements appear in bold):

As president, I will work to make sure no one gets murdered or no one steals because if I found out who it was, they would go into jail!

As president, I will stop some drugs, cigarettes, homework, and cure poison snake bites!

I want to be remembered as a president who cares, helps, and has fun!

Clearly, there's a lot of work to do to get her around to a libertarian point of view. That last answer kinds of sounds like President Clinton's tag line for his personal ads, which isn't a poor relfection on her (she's eight), but kind of the other way around.

That kid of yours is a real gem! (Both of them, actually.)
