Barack Obama's daughter boycotts (Paris) Hilton Hotels

Presidential hopeful Barack Obama and his family spend a lot of time these days in hotel rooms. Their campaign travels take them all over the country, but one place Obama's 9-year-old daughter won't go is a Hilton Hotel. Obama tells Tyra Banks that Malia keeps up with the news and because she disapproves of Paris Hilton, she doesn't want the Obama family supporting the Hilton family.

"This isn't a Hilton hotel, is it?" Obama says his daughter will ask. "Parents have to realize, kids want limits, they want structure," he said. "They don't want you to be their best friend. They want you to be the parent. If we had more parenting, then the kinds of influences we see on television don't matter."

I agree with him and I like the way his little girl thinks. Boycotting Hilton Hotels may not really have any impact on Paris' bottom line, but it's the principle behind the idea that appeals to me.
