    Mine's interested in the ideologies, but not the specifics.

    He'd rather discus the major differences between parties or government systems than anything else.

    He thinks both Obama and McCain are idiots, so he's off to a good start.

    What do you mean?

    At 13 kids still think rosy thoughts no need to stress them out with real world stuff before they are ready to comprehend it in context.

    Of course. When I was 12, I was actively praying for the failure of the Democratic presidential nominee on the grounds that he was the Antichrist.

    Why? Some kids have much to say that adults could learn from. They are not as cynical and jaded.

    Neither, actually, but I should probably keep the real person a secret for now until I'm sure.

    Yes, but I think this site is the wrong place for that. The discussion is at a level of depth that kids can't relate to. I was 13 not too long ago, I know that I would never want my past self on here.
