Election 2012: How Parents Are Voting

Barbara Spottel

57% say being a parent makes you a better president

Tania: [Having kids] doesn't make you better, just more aware.

Jesse: Even if the president has kids, I hope it isn't affecting policy. I don't want you tackling issues based on your children's best interests, but based on America's best interests.

Are you OK with your children joining the military?

Jesse: It would be their decision, but honestly, it did a lot of good for me.

Kate Snow: But what if your child came home and said, “Dad, I'm going.”

Jesse: I would make sure they're doing it for the right reasons. If they say, “I want to drive a tank,” I'm not supporting that. On the other hand, our pediatrician got his training in the army. They paid for his medical school. Education is a good reason.
