Thread Name: POL: A Salute to Jim Jeffords!
Subject: RE: POL: A Salute to Jim Jeffords!
In the town where my brother lives, there lives a Republican woman from Vermont. She recently ran for office as a Democrat, with the support of Republican moderates, all of whom were terrified of the Religious Right.

She said, she had been a lifelong Republican, because the Democrats were the party of fiscal irresponsibility and Southern bigotry. How times have changed.
