Street Talkers ’08 Election Edition

For this installment of Street Talkers, GO stepped off the street and into New York’s swanky Sunday brunch party, Stiletto, to ask their savvy patrons: Who are you voting for and why?

Name: Carrie

Age: 30

Residence: Brooklyn

Occupation: Epidemiologist

Last Book Read: The Shipping News by Annie Proulx

Your Vote: Obama. In the past I’ve voted as an Independent, but at this point I really think Obama and the Democrats need to come in; McCain/Palin is just terrible, terrible bad news.

Important Issues: Foreign policy.

Does being queer affect your decision? I’d like to say that anyone anti-queer wouldn’t get my vote, but I know we’re not there yet.

What Do You Think?
