Subject: RE: POL: A Salute to Jim Jeffords!
Just had another thought, Melani, if Jim Jeffords is so confident of his support back home, I wonder why he didn't follow the traditional way Senators who have previously deserted their party did?

I believe he is the first Senator that has not resigned his post first, and then try to regain his seat as a candidate of his new party.

I think the Democrats made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Mr. D. wants to be Majority Leader pretty bad.
