I’m an Associate General Counsel at a large state university and a Republican. As far as I can discern, all of the other AGCs are Democrats. I don’t think the workplace is the right place to talk politics, but right now the political chatter about the Presidential election is overwhelming and driving me nuts. I haven’t revealed my political leanings and don’t want to—but unless I talk politics, there simply isn’t any small talk to be had. I’m very conservative and very opinionated (Romney is the clear solution to our economic woes and will advance the interests of those people who truly make this country great; Obama will destroy us if he gets another four years at the helm), and fear that if I speak up, I’ll forever isolate myself from my colleagues. But I can’t handle their crazy liberal talk anymore!! Help me!
