That’s the question posed by BuzzFeed editor Dorsey Shaw in the video below. On the one hand, RuPaul told Raw Story last weekend that he’s “not a political person” by nature; on the other hand, he proved himself quite adept at answering the policy questions posed by Yahoo’s Chris Moody before the final New Hampshire debate.

RuPaul, who judges “Drag Race” on Logo Television with aplomb, is adept at moderating disputes between contestants and getting to the heart of any given issue. Plus, unlike some Fox News personalities, she would definitely not be tossing the GOP candidates any softballs.

Watch the video below, first uploaded by BuzzFeed on January 10, 2012, to judge for yourself.
