The Next Great American novel?

I'm a little embarrassed by all of the talk about whether 'Jack and Noah's Big Election' is in the running for the next 'great American novel,' joining the ranks of 'The Scarlet Letter,' 'Moby Dick,' and 'The Grapes of Wrath.'  I'm mostly embarrassed because I'm the only person in the world who's having this discussion about 'Big Election.'  I have had some great feedback from the Bausch and Hobday families, whose children giggle non-stop while reading the book.  Anyway, my viewpoint is that any book that kids will read over a lazy summer is a great American novel.  Let's make American great again by avoiding summer mush brain!
