Several articles on "security moms" appeared in September.
Why women are edging toward Bush
President-making security moms
Security Moms (the second entry)
Apparently "Security Moms" is this key demographic that pollsters have
come up with to describe married mothers who have school-age children.
The reason that this demographic has been identified is that it is
breaking heavily for the President.
Well, I guess I'm now both a "Soccer Mom" and a "Security Mom" Sheralyn
said. [My oldest son had his first soccer game yesterday.]
Sheralyn gave me this look that I've identified as "for a smart guy, you
have so much to learn." Then she set me straight, "It's the babysitter
"Who would you rather baby-sit your kids, George and Laura, or Kerry and
"Well, George and Laura, but isn't that a bit nanny-statish of you?"
This was getting good.
"Not at all. I don't won't the government to take care of my kids, but
I'd like the head of the government to be trustworthy enough to watch my
kids for a minute while I run to the store."
"Er, honey, we don't know any of these people." I winked back, "None of
them are going to watch…"
"Doesn't matter," she said, "women want someone they can trust."
That's good enough for me.
