The heart is not so easily changed (but the head can be persuaded)

Since I have a two year old girl, I’ve been watching Frozen every day since we purchased it a month ago and have found this line particularly pithy and profound.

This little quote reminded me of an interesting conversation I had with a friend of mine who went and caucused last weekend. He said that, just before they took the tally, there were noticeably more people in Bernie’s corner. Then, at the last minute, he said people started abandoning ship for Hillary’s side.

From what he said, the sentiments around their decision to move was, “There’s just no way he’ll win. I love him, but she’s the mainstream one. Why waste a vote with a loser?”

And so the head butts in and wins again. But I think we both know where their heart remained.
