Going for the youth vote
Politicians are starting younger and younger:
Texas GOP Sens. Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn are coming to a TV near you, chatting it up with Sesame Street characters Elmo and Rosita. In a public-service announcement each taped for Sesame Street's 36th season -- which starts Monday on Public Broadcasting Service stations -- Hutchison and Cornyn promote healthy eating, nutrition and exercise.

"With more than 30 percent of American children overweight, we all bear the responsibility of helping our children learn early on the benefits of healthy eating and exercise," Hutchison said.

Cornyn's take: "What better way to encourage healthy habits in preschool-aged children than to use the trusted friends of Sesame Street."
