Stay-at-home mom Nichole Garcia and her three-year-old were late for storytime but stopped for a few minutes to talk about the presidential election. She and her husband are Army veterans who strongly believe in the war in Iraq.
"I believe if we just pulled out our troops, it would cause problems.'' Garcia said. "All the troops, all the deaths, would be in vain."
Garcia is also concerned about "pork-barrel spending" and said Republican John McCain will get it under control.
"All those crazy things they are using our tax money for,'' she said. "I believe he and Gov. Palin will shake things up."
