No people shouldn't forget Symington's footdragging on health care and impeachment. Hard to forget the Reformer's endorsement of Douglas last time either. Parker wasn't the best but he was certainly better than Symington. Plus he was hamstrung by her pitiful handling of health care. He had nothing to run on, thanks to that.

Gaye Symington is a poor choice for govenor. She does not listen, she does not bend and has bad rap as speaker. Douglas may not be perfect, but he is a lot better than her. Divided government works because both sides of the political aisle have to come to an agreement that is acceptable to all. That is how Democracy works best, when it is a true two party state, not a one party state as the Dems or Progressives would want. The Vermont I grew up in was a place where everyone worked together to accomplish things. Gaye Symington as govenor would only move Vermont further into the socialist column.
