The mother-in-law unit was in town for a few days visiting us and seeing what she could do to help during the course of my illness. She's relatively harmless so long as you agree with her world viewpoint. She and her husband are HUGE Obama fans ("He's our only hope."). I can't remember how we got to this point in the conversation and I'm unfortunately don't remember her exact phrasing, but we were discussing politics and the state of the nation. She was curious what my wife and I thought, however she didn't want to hear anything negative about Obama. That was pretty much a conversation ender and we just let her prattle on whenever she felt like it and we just nodded our heads.
