- Josh & Catherine: I ran a campaign against Josh for UCLA President before my candidate lost in the preliminary round. Then I and the Bruin Democrats endorsed Josh even though Josh was conservative. After graduation, Josh went off to work at the White House. He left the White House last October to go work for John Ashcroft's law firm. John Ashcroft once started singing 'You're So Vain' to Josh. Catherine is Josh's fiance. They're both Evangelical Christians voting for John McCain.
- Lauren & Dave: Lauren was in the Bruin Democrats with me and took classes on the Middle East with Josh. She is much more liberal than I, and works for a technology consulting firm started by some Deaniacs. Her boyfriend Dave is also uber liberal and does something in politics.
- Ashlynn & her sister: Ashlynn and Josh met through a program that goes to Israel. Now she works for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (aka: AIPAC, the huge pro-Israel lobby). Like Josh, she's an conservative Evangelical Christian.
- Cara: Cara worked in the White House with Josh. Like many Bushies, she went to the Unviersity of Texas. I do not know who she is voting for, but she has friends on the Huckabee campaign.
- Me & Alex: Even though I shop at Banana Repbulic(an), I think everyone knows where I stand politically. Alex is a registered independent now in DC, meaning he cannot vote in the primaries. He would vote for Hillary if he was as Democrat, and McCain if he was a Republican. Figure that one out.
- Helen Thomas: Helen has been a White House correspondent for 57 years, and was the first woman part of the National Press Club. Ok, Helen was not eating at our table, but she was in the restaurant.
