Presidenting Is Hard

I enjoyed Laura Bush’s selection for story time with the kiddies at this morning’s White House Easter Egg Roll.

After her welcome, the first lady sat in one of the area’s designated reading nooks and read “Duck for President,” by Doreen Cronin. It’s a story of a duck who gets sick of farm chores and decides to run for office — first for head of the farm, then governor and, finally, president. In the end he decides running the country is too much work and goes back to the farm.

Yes, running the country is too much work, great message to send the children. At least the story recognizes that candidates of diverse backgrounds can seek public office.
