Hee!!! That is so cute!!

Last election I firmly admonished myself not to base my voting decision upon how cute someone's kids were. Now I'm kind of going through the same thing with this photo. LOL

I know, right? I tend to vote on just a few key issues (health care [oh, you know, for women, too, GOP!], abortion, gay rights), as the rest just gets lost in the shuffle. Though I firmly understand that voting for president is completely idiotic, as one vote holds very little power there. The place where the polls matter is your local elections, which is sadly where no one votes except old people who are woefully behind on, well, everything.

Sigh.

I lived in a town of 500 people for years. So, let's say, what, 100 of them vote? Maybe? Yeah. One vote matters. Especially since those are direct majority wins elections (don't get me started on winning states and the electoral college). That's power. POTUS? It doesn't matter much at all who one person votes for. Yet we push hard for folks to vote. Silly.

So in the end, voting for the Trekkie is just fine by me. ;)

Yeah, I saw it via Twitter, too. Of course. Does anyone get anything in any other way these days?

(Actually, I saw it because you responded to it and I was curious what you thought was cool. I'd been AFT [away from Twitter] for a few days and so I missed Nichelle's tweet originally.)

That is awesome! I wonder if Pres. Obama watches Star Trek? :-)

Yes. He had said as much in interviews.

I mean, he did get a private screening of Trek 11 in The White House. On purpose. ;)

Re: ^_^
Mutual admiration society FTW!

My first thought was actually how historic this pic is. I mean, we all have heard Nichelle's story about how MLK wouldn't allow her to quite Trek because she was a role model for black women (and men) back then and here she is with the first black president now. Well done, world. Well done. (Though I am still astounded it took this long for a more-melanin-disposed person to become President. How silly to care about such things. Sigh.)
