I also have a feeling that the changes in casting and personalities of the characters had to do with trying to grab more of the 18-49 demographic, especially the lower end. Easier for them to relate to an older Kristen who is pro-Obama and has more attitude, played by an actress whose previous role was on a show focused squarely in that demographic.

I disagree on two points. First, I don't think Vanessa was playing the "little woman" that has to keep her politics a secret. She seemed to get a kick out of keeping her vote a secret as if to tease Mike and Kristen. Second, I don't think it was really shooting for "even-handedly" dishing out the barbs--just look at all the angry comments in the discussion on the show's page at ABC.
