    While I certainly understand that Democrats will have a wide range of opinions, and I'm probably more forgiving than most for people that stray from the party line on this or that issue, if you can't support the head of your party, why are you listing that party affiliation on the ballot.  While I don't really like it, I think it's acceptable for him not to get overly involved in the presidential campaign (although a big turnout from Dems in Jacksonville could be important if Florida hinges on a very narrow margin), not to say whether or not you're going to support your party's candidate for President is not acceptable.

    And, I don't think it's good politics.  I think it's cowardly politics.  If you're planning to run as Democrat in a swing or Republican area next time, the right wing is going to hammer you for being a Democrat anyway, so why would you also potentially alienate your base.

    Mayor Brown's election was one of the municipal-level races I was most happy about when it happened.  Not any more.
