Subject: RE: POL: A Salute to Jim Jeffords!

It was pointed out earlier in this thread, "that in the past two decades twenty or so Democratic legislators have switched to the Republican party. During the same period, the Republicans have lost two or three" (--DougR).

Do you hold the same view about Democracy being dead as a result of the Democrats switching to the Republican party as you do about Jeffords becoming an independant?
