Writing Prompt for September 26, 2008

Let's Talk Politics (1)

It is a presidential election year. Write a dialogue in which two (or more) people discuss a political issue or candidate. Have the people disagree. Does the conversation become heated? Or does one person back-pedal or suppress her or his real beliefs? If you are writing fiction, try this with at least one character who you haven't thought of as political at all. Is the character registered in a party? Does the character always vote? Ever vote?
