V and I watching the last Presidential Debate

These are the actual conversations V and I have had so far, 30 minutes into the final presidential debate. Before they started, I wanted to explain a little bit of what was going on.

"So, V, in this country, the United States, we have one leader of the whole country. This person has more power than anyone else in America, and gets to help make and enforce laws, and decide how we as a nation spend some of our resources. Every four years, we as a country get to go and vote and decide who will get to be the president."
"Mm-hm. Is Columbus the president?"
"Uh, no. When Columbus was here, we didn’t have presidents yet."
"Okay. I hate Columbus."
"I hate him."
"You hate Columbus?"
"I don’t know."

"Who’s the red guy?"
"You mean the one in the red tie?"
"That’s Barack Obama."
"Who’s the blue guy?"
"That’s John McCain."
"John McCain is grown up."
"What do you mean?"
"He’s big."
"You mean old?"
"Yes. He’s old and big."

"See those two men?"
"Which of them do you think would make the best president?"
"Barack Obama."
"Because I love him."
"Why do you love him?"
"Because he is tall."

Oh, if it was only that simple. I think there are some of us who need a little lesson from Miss V!
