Dems? Dean? Done.

That’s it. As of today, or at least as soon as my county board of elections gets my updated voter registration, I am no longer a registered Democrat. I am officially unaffiliated. Why, you ask? Well, I guess it was … Continue reading

Victories & the Field in 2006 and Beyond

I haven’t experienced a post-election morning like this since the 1992 presidential election. Democratic gubernatorial candidates won in Virginia (which Bush carried in 2004, and where he made 11th hour campaign appearances with the Republican Candidate) and New Jersey. Arnold … Continue reading
