Politics are not quite my cup of tea. I try to stay informed but honestly, I get a little bored. It’s all a bunch of talk, and it has never been a real big part of my life. I do understand its importance though.
Charles Winters writes the majority of political commentary provided on GaySocialites.com. I’m thankful he does because it probably would not be covered here if he didn’t. So when thinking about my Roundtable, I thought it may be good to get a little political for a change. The election is 6 months away and it’s important to focus on it a little more, regardless of my own interest level.
So, I’ve asked Charles to lead this week’s panel. He will make for a more riveting discussion, and be in heaven while doing it.
Thanks Thomas for this opportunity to host the Editor’s Roundtable!
Welcome everyone! When Thomas asked me to be the special guest host of the Editor’s Roundtable Election 2012 Special, I got a little more excited than any man should! Needless to say, I’m a political junkie!
For this year’s Presidential race, I find myself undecided… so far. I am excited to weigh out the promises made by the candidates and watch their campaigns closely until one wins me over.
For today’s discussion, I wanted to invite a diverse group of individuals who can each offer unique opinions in hopes of helping voters set their gauge as we enter the 2012 General Election. Let me introduce you to the panel.
As Thomas said earlier, my name is Charles Winters. I am the founder and CEO of Charles Winters Information Management, the parent company for GaySocialites.com. Politically, I am a moderate Democrat. As I like to say, a Clinton Democrat.
Demanda Dahling, a New York nightlife personality and GaySocialites.com contributor, joins us each week for this panel. Demanda says she “isn’t too interested in politics.” Politically, she identifies as a liberal Republican.
Thomas Bistrtitz is, of course, the Editor-in-Chief here at GaySocialites.com and hosts the Editor’s Roundtable each week. Thomas is a liberal Independent.
Our guests this week are:
Joshua Sean, the Chief Information Officer at GaySocialites.com who also runs his own companies Cream Code Design and Development Team and Webhattan Webhosting, says he is a liberal Democrat.
Soo Joo, the columnist of “Things That Make You Go Hmmm” every Wednesday here at GaySocialites.com, is a moderate Republican who says she is thinking about becoming an Independent.
Dylan Edwards is a former contributor to GaySocialites.com. Although we’ve focused primarily on Dylan’s treatment for addiction in his writings here; he has many layers. He is an NYU graduate with a degree in Journalism. He also has his finger on the pulse of politics. He describes himself “as Independent as they come.”
