Can you talk politics with your relatives? Or does a family dinner turn into an episode of "Hardball with Chris Matthews"?

You know it's bad when you have the urge to "unfriend" kin on Facebook because of their stupid political rants. (Your political rants, on the other hand, are well-reasoned and, well, just right.)

Do you come from a long line of proud (insert Democratic or Republican here) supporters? Or do you look at your parents and wonder how two terribly misguided people raised such an intelligent voter as yourself?

Are you and your spouse on the same political page, or do your votes cancel each other out?Can you agree to disagree? Or has one of you been sleeping on the couch since the conventions?
