The Spanish word for president is "Presidente". I have a Mexican origin. When they told me Vicente Fox was the president of Mexico, I thougt that his name was Fox and that both Presidente and Vicente were titles. I used to boast to my school partners that Fox was Presidente AND Vicente of Mexico xD

When I was little I heard on the TV that poverty had something to do with politics. I knew politics was something the mayor do, and mayors take care of cities.
So I believed that poor people lived in poor towns, and rich people lived in rich towns.

When I was little I wanted to be president.
I thought a president has power to do whatever he or she wanted because I didn't know about the constitution or three branches of government. So I was determined to become president and make it a law that everyone had to have a horse.

I used to worry that the presidential candidate my parents didn't vote for won, the world would end. Luckily it wasn't put to the test until I had some sence knocked into me.

When I used to hear things on the news like "Terrorists are a serious threat to the peace and security of the world" I wondered what was so bad about people who travelled to other places on vacation (tourists).

Before I knew about voting I thought a president was picked as so: the old president would have everyone in the country go to this HUGE building where he would stand on a stage at ask "ok, who wants to be president?" and anyone who wanted to be would raise their hands and the old president would pick one at random and they would be the new president!

When I was little, I thought people voted by putting out candidates' signs on their lawn. I thought if you put out more signs than you were voting more, and I didn't understand why we only put out 2.

I used to believe that the candidate that lost the Presidential election became the Vice President as a sort of consolation prize. I didn't realize candidates picked their vice presidents ahead of time.

I used to think that if the president (and maybe police officers as well; I don't remember) told anyone to do something, they were required by law to do it.

You know how every state has an official state seal? Until I was in SIXTH grade I thought that every state had a real seal (the animal) at their state capital.

I thought that ex-presidents always had to wear and "X," and if you called them President or ex-President, they would arrest you.

I thought that a President was like an elected dictator who could do anything he wanted and we were just lucky we never got an evil guy as President
