More on Who People Who Play Music Are Voting For

In addition to the Guardian, music blog Hard to Find a Friend has done some polling of its own, for its "Indie Rock Votes" posted today. Seattle, or (mostly) Barsuk Records, is well-repped- here's how a few weighed in:

Chris Walla

"Barack Obama. Audacious indeed!"

"I'm not sure who I'm voting for yet. I guess it's between Obama and Edwards, I've got some more reading to do."

"I practice political abstinence. If I had a gun to my head I'd probably vote for Kucinich. I like Ron Paul but he's said some questionable things regarding race, and he's a religious zealot, which is a real wild card."

Van Riker (Barsuk Records publicist)

"I'm Pro Edwards at the Moment."

Note: As Mr. Riker's opinion clearly must have been given more than a few moments ago, we have an email into him for an updated stance.

UPDATE: For those of you who've been waiting with bated breath, Riker has shifted his support to Obama.

The fact that next January we could be swearing in either a woman or an African-American is so exciting. Hilary is wise and the thought of Bill Clinton as First Husband makes my heart swell - Obama is super inspirational and both would represent a huge step forward for the collective American subconscious. It's a pretty rote perspective for a musician to take but it's the truth.
