A new student comes to Springfield Elementary called Isabel Gutierrez, who is Lisa's intellectual equal. Lisa and Isabel become fast best friends but things take a left turn when they realize they have different political views - Isabel is a republican. They end up running against each other in the second-grade election, and then we flash to the future where they're engaged in an actual presidential debate - and Anderson Cooper is the moderator.

Funny parts,but the Weakest Episode of the Season So Far,
13 May 2014 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Kid is All Right is a good Simpsons episode with a decent storyline and several very funny scenes. It isn't awful,but it is without a doubt the weakest episode of the twenty fifth season so far.The episodes storyline just felt really repetitive,it had several things we had already seen on the show before,for example,Lisa making a friend that soon become a rival and Lisa running for class president (as seen in Lisa's Rival and the President Wore Pearls).Eva Longoria did a great job in her guest appearance,but I wish they gave her character more funny and memorable things to say.The Kid is All Right is enjoyable while it lasts,but it's very forgetful.

Lisa finally makes a new best friend,only to discover she's a republican and class campaign rival.
