LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Pundits have called this Presidential election the "most important election of our lifetime," and state politicians feel their particular races are just as dramatic. But, we found an election bigger than all of them in the heart of Little Rock.
Fair Park Childhood Development Center, a school made up entirely of 4-year-olds, took part in an election between Clifford the Big Red Dog and Pete the Cat. Students lined up for the most important vote of their lives-to determine the leader of their school.
For more than two days the election raged, and both candidates had written books detailing their plans for Clifford to rescue the country and jobs.
For Pete the cat, the election was all about style.
Rallies and a short debate took place along with endorsements, like the one Clifford received from Humpty Dumpty.
Would it be "Four more paws" or "9 more lives"?
The voting commenced. Some kids were in line for as long as 8 minutes. Everything went smoothly, even though there was a hint of fraud.
This was for the future of a school, but it was an exercise maintaining the future of a country.
