Quitting The Party

I am so tempted to do what Mayor Mike did yesterday. Quit the party. I’ve been a registered Dem for at least 20 years. But this year I am so sick of both parties and partisan politics, that I am almost done. All it will take is another crappy Presidential nominee from the Dems and it will be over. And it sure looks like that’s where we are headed.

Now Mayor Mike’s another thing entirely. I know everyone thinks he’s got no shot at the White House in 2008. So what. He’s what I long for in a candidate. Pragmatic, action oriented, driven to make a difference, and centrist. If he runs, he’s got my vote, my support, and whatever else I can give him.
