I don't like talking about politics, especially with people I don't know very well (and to a large extent–the opposite holds true as well: I hate talking politics with people I know very well), just because the various differences between our stances sometimes causes rather severe and overly-dramatic conflicts.

That said, and in light of the recent presidential race in the United States, I think it's nice that, for the most part–away from the camera and lights of debates and press–both John McCain and Barack Obama are both very decent people–as evidenced by their gracious and humorous speeches at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner (thanks to Io Zeno for posting ^^).
