Subject: RE: POL: A Salute to Jim Jeffords!
On the subject of questioning whether or not he left the Republican party because of promises made by Democrats, I think that's a double edged sword. Because it then opens up the possibility of discussion about whether or not the Republican party used promises to coax Democrats like Sen. Nighthorse Campbell, Sen. Shelby, Sen. Thurmond, Sen. Byrd, and Sen. Morse, to leave the Democratic party.
