Kissing Babies

Mr Trifectagirl is actively involved at the local level with the Australian Labor Party.  The Federal Cabinet, including the Prime Minister, today held local community consultations, followed by a "meet and greet" for party faithful this evening.  Mr Trifectagirl wanted to go, wanted me to go, and for us to take J.  So I agreed to go.

Once the Prime Minister actually arrived and walked into the room, it didn't take long for her to see baby J, a bee-line was made for us.  The proverbial polititian kissing babies - even if it was an in-house event.

The funny thing was, J and I were watching the Prime Minister on the news just prior to leaving.  And when she came over to us at the event, it seemed J actually recognised her! 

Other than that, I personally found it a pretty dull afair.  My mother was active in the other side of politics, so I grew up being dragged to these sorts of events.  Different political persuasion, but same old type of event.
