Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

Meet Erin Evenson

Erin Evenson is a 35-year-old, anxiety-ridden liberal living in Bay Ridge. The Midwestern daughter of a bohemian textile artist mother and a reformed conservative gun-toting Norwegian father, Erin was thoroughly confused in her youth and became an Independent, vegan, punk, Brit- and power-pop-adoring Hindu, only to realize in adulthood that she is truly a left-leaning, bacon-worshipping agnostic...

Meet Dontré L. Conerly

Dontré L. Conerly is a Democrat concerned most about the abolition of the middle class. This 25-year-old journalist laments the fact that Americans now fear their government, which has effectively killed any sense of hope and idealism for change and new ideas. This country used to be governed by utilitarianism, now it benefits a select few. Oh, and he wants his stimulus check “tanow”...

Meet Dan Goldman

Dan Goldman is left-Libertarian who gets uncomfortable when too many people around him agree with his views. This 28-year-old legal assistant is also a conservative-progressive who just likes messin’ with your mind.

Meet Bilal Salahuddin

Bilal Salahuddin, 33, is still adjusting to his new nickname of “haji” endowed by his friends and colleagues at his construction firm. Originally from Pakistan, he feels he is a true product of the future, of what this world is becoming — multi-cultural, multi-lingual — and can see why Obama is a voice of the future that can be heard in the present. Bilal feels that people hate...

Meet Adrian Lee

Adrian Lee, 25, is a Libertarian-Republican who once worked for Ron Paul but has been swept up in Obamania. He thinks the 24-hour news cycle is ruining political life and loves to see pundits make completely absurd predictions that are forgotten as quickly as they are declared. This Texan straight-shooter prefers dodging taxis and tourists in Times Square to dealing with government bureaucrats,...

Meet Amara Birman

Amara Birman, 25, is a moderate-to-conservative Republican with strong convictions and the outspokenness to defend them.

She has since retired to the private sector and is discovering the merits of weekends. Born in Canada, Amara moved to Florida (Go GATORS!) with her...

Meet Bragg Van Antwerp

Bragg Van Antwerp, 31, is an Alabama native now nearing his ninth year in New York. Though he works on Wall Street, he is a huge political junkie and has been for as long as he can remember. In 1988, he dressed up as Michael Dukakis for Halloween, (though not as a show of support). A lifelong Republican, Bragg is trying to become more enthusiastic about John McCain, a process helped along by the...

Meet Meg Boyle

The daughter of a Democrat almost sent to prison for his conscientious objection to the Vietnam War, naturally Meg Boyle grew up dreaming of being a law-abiding Republican. It was not to be, though, as this 28-year-old operations coordinator registered as an Independent and once broke into a bar. Like Jesus, Meg lives a nomadic lifestyle and has issues with authority. She can’t wait for November....
