I can’t be the only one today who wishes Duck really was on the ballot. Doreen Cronin, who taught a generation about collective bargaining in Click, Clack, Moo and Giggle, Giggle Quack (and others) has also worked her magic on the American political process! Now, unlike with Click, Clack, Moo, I did not buy copies of Duck for President for my entire family, but I still love this gem of a book! It’s right up in there in my affections with Schoolhouse Rock’s “I’m Just a Bill” and “Elbow Room” and the “Preamble”in terms of teaching about American history, government and civics. Duck for President.
Enjoy the story here:
And because almost no one remembers why we have the Electoral College (hint: slavery and elitism figure in), here is Schoolhouse Rock to explain it. Here is a link to the lyrics.
Don’t Mess Up Your Ballot!
Voter Confusion Run Amok!
Classic West Wing Scene!
No matter how hard it may be, go to the polls tomorrow and vote.
“Wouldn’t be prudent….not at this juncture!” Tell ’em Poppy….I mean Dana….
Hail to the Chief with the Ruffles and Flourishes.
