VoteSo with more energy surrounding the presidential candidates than in past campaigns, what are your thoughts about the people running for our nation’s highest office? A lot has been made about the different ways that many of these candidates are trying to reach out to their voters. And for once, the youth vote is actually playing a role. Helping the cause are the politicians’ children. For example, Republican Mitt Romney’s sons have a blog called Five Brothers that they maintain from the campaign trail. Republican John McCain’s daughter, Meghan, also keeps a blog — the McCainBlogette (which looks very cool, by the way). On the Democrat side, Barack Obama’s children are a little too young, but he does have a MySpace page, as does Hillary Clinton.
