Your link brought back some memories. The press made a big deal of reporting his RV campaigning & his American Indian views. Both of which I found favorable.<quoted text>
Pops, I've been registered both Republican and Democrat over the years, but I've never voted for a Republican president. Have you ever voted for a Democratic presidential candidate? I find that many "independent voters" still have pretty strong partisan feelings...
I know you are also an old fart, so I'm going to throw this out. I haven't been really happy with any of the Democratic candidates. I just always thought they were better than the opposition. But my favorite all time candidate was Fred Harris. Do you remember him?
I did vote for Clinton in his 2nd term. He's the only dem pres that I voted for. I couldn't find any good reason to vote for Gore or Kerry even tho I wasn't happy with Bush it was two of the 'lesser of 2 evils' thing to me. But as for governor, state reps,mayors, State atty's General etc....I have not kept a ledger, but have probably voted 30% dem, & 5-10% 3rd party.
