Nov. 3 - Video of a sobbing toddler saying she's tired of the U.S. election becomes a YouTube sensation. Rough Cut (no reporter narration)
With just days to go until Americans select the next president, a video of a 4-year old Colorado girl crying about the U.S. elections has struck a chord with many election weary Americans, resulting in nearly seven million hits on YouTube. In the video, the toddler has tears streaming down her face. Asked by her mother Elizabeth Evans (off camera), "what's wrong?" Abigael cries and says, "Just because I'm tired.. I'm tired of 'Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney'." According to Elizabeth, her daughter was listening to NPR (National Public Radio) reports in the car and just broke down into tears. NPR has since issued a formal apology to the little girl saying, "We must confess, the campaign's gone on long enough to us, too." U.S. President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are essentially tied in national polls, but the president holds a slight edge in the battleground states that are crucial to gaining the 270 electoral votes needed to win.
