This really is a great story. She calls this a lesson in free markets, which it clearly is. But as she also points out, it's more than that. When you think about it, what's the toughest part of entrepreneurism? Finding a product people want when they want it. People want their coffee every day, but this probably won't be a great idea tomorrow or the day after.
In fact, this is exactly the type of opportunism conservatives(and the occasional Newt Gingrich) consider "vulture capitalism:"
There were several kids staffing the stand, as well as a supervisory adult or two, complete with to-go supplies and large, colorful signs advertising their product. So, not only were these young entrepreneurs capitalizing on an excellent opportunity to make some pocket money, but adults who maybe rushed out of the house to get to the voting station with nary a chance for their morning coffee, or who were feeling chilled in the November air, could purchase a warming, caffeinated beverage if they so desired.
And yes, the kids got out of bed on a day there is no school and took advantage of the situation. A lot of kids could have but didn't. This is what makes America great! Geeze I hope these kids know they're conservative.
