Politics, culture, and American life — from the family perspective.

My Family the Moment We Lost Ohio


We took our family to Boston for what we hoped would be a victory celebration. It wasn’t.


While we waited for Governor Romney to give his concession speech, some reporters documented our distress for posterity. Above is our whole family (with my older daughter in the background) minus my four year old who stayed back home in Tennessee

Am I sad that our victory party quickly turned into a “teaching moment?” Definitely. But I’m also glad that we were all together to help each other process the loss.

I’ll let you know once we figure it all out.
