Karen : Martin, who are you going to vote for?      

Martin : You mean for president?

Karen : Yes.      

Martin : I'm not sure yet.    

Karen : You should make up your mind soon. The election is next month.       

Martin : Yes, I know. I hear about it every day on the news.   

Karen : I'm going to vote for Obama.   

Martin : I think he is a good choice, but I think McCain would make a good president also.   

Karen : I know. They're both good. It's hard to decide. McCain is older but he has more experience. Obama seems to have a lot of good ideas, but some people say he wants to raise taxes.      

Martin : I heard he wants to lower taxes. It's hard to know what the truth is. That's the reason I really don't pay attention to politics.  

Karen : Yes, it can be frustrating, but it's important and it's interesting to watch.
