It's early, I know. Barack was just sworn in and already I'm thinking ahead. How cool would it be if Malia and Sasha followed in daddy's footsteps? The Obama Political Dynasty can carry us for a few generations as far as I'm concerned. Granted, we need someone in between Barack and his daughters. Someone who's around 27 now.
