Politics Hits the Playground

It seems there was a bit of a dust up during recess at my son's elementary school.
"Jackson" said he was voting for Obama which didn't go over well with "Harrison," an avid McCain supporter.
The fact that eight-year-olds cannot vote didn't deter the harshness of the rhetoric. Nor did it prevent "Jackson" from leveling the dreaded, "You're not my friend anymore!" line.
So what say you? Do you discuss politics with your kids? Are they picking up on your preferences? Can adults or eight-year-olds be friends if they are on opposite sides of the political spectrum during an election year?
