A 4-year-old boy in a Minnesota town is beginning his second term in office as mayor.

Bobby Tufts of Dorset, Minn. did some last-minute stumping over the weekend, and his political ideas seem to be catching on.

"His political platform is pretty amazing. You know, ice cream at the top of the food pyramid," said one Dorset resident. "I mean, as long as he's talking about chocolate ice cream, I think we're OK."

Ballot box stuffing is the way to win the mayoral race in this town. That's because the winner is picked at random. Dorset has fewer than 30 residents and no official city government -- well, besides Mayor Bobby Tufts, of course.
