WASHINGTON -- During our video live streams on Thursday and Friday at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference, HuffPost reporter Zach Carter spoke with a wide array of speakers and attendees. The youngest was a 4-year-old dressed in a "I only cry when Democrats hold me" T-shirt.

"The Romney shirt was too big," her mother said, holding the little girl, Naomi. "So we got this one."

CPAC is a major annual event for the conservative movement that helps shape the relationship between voters in the Republican base and the D.C. political establishment. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke Friday at the conference, as well as fellow candidates Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.

Before concluding the interview, Naomi's mother showed off her daughter's T-shirt again. "I only cry when Democrats hold me," the mom repeated. "Thankfully it's not when Democrats interview me."

Zach Carter is not a Democrat.
