At 14, Rico Rodriguez isn't even old enough to vote, but he knows exactly which of his "Modern Family" castmates he'd like to see enter the political fray. "It would be awesome to have Sofia [Vergara] in office," Rodriguez told Yeas & Nays when he was in town last week for the National Christmas Tree lighting. "And then I could visit her all the time in the White House and I could probably have my own room in the White House," the young actor, who plays Manny, continued. He also knew what a big deal it would be. "That first Latin woman -- who's a girl," he pointed out. "So, you know, my week off, I'm just going to go hang with Sofia in the White House, no biggie," he concluded. Of course this is only a pipe dream -- Vergara wasn't born in the U.S. so she isn't eligible to run for president.
