How would Twilight characters vote?
Hmmm, I like to think of Bella as a progressive. It may just be wishful thinking, but I think her horrific pregnancy experience (coupled with the fact it was unplanned) would make her a pro-choice voter. Thus, no Meg Whitman or other Sarah Palin types for her.
And, given that Alice can see the future, I think she would likely recognize the horrors of having a Tea Party government and would also vote left.
As for Jasper, given his military history, he might be a more conservative voter – he might even be pleased that Obama is not the anti-war president some had hoped…
Rosalie, due to her championing of motherhood, might be more likely to vote for the anti-choice candidates who attempt to frame themselves as supporters of “family values.”
I would like to think that the Quileute characters would vote for more progressive, leftist candidates given their experiences living on the wrong side of the privilege divide. And I think Leah would be particularly unhappy with the direction of healthcare which aims to cover Viagra and penis ops but not fertility treatment or other “womanly” issues…
Carlisle seems pretty level-headed – he might have even attended the “Rally for Sanity.”
I doubt Renee would make it to the polls – she is likely too busy watching Phil play baseball or searching for her lost cell phone charger.
Esme, on the other hand, is a closet intellectual and radical leftie if you ask me. She may even be angling to run for president in 2012.
As for Edward, wish I could have more faith in the vampire god of all that is hot, but his “traditional” ways make me fear he might be taken in by those insidious ad campaigns…
The Volturi? Tea party all the way.
How about you all? How do you envision Twilight characters voting?
