  •  I was born in 1967 too... (7+ / 0-)

    in the heart of a rural red state.  My parents always were clear about voting for the person not the party. I knew that, even as a kid.  However, my first political memory is watching the Watergate hearings while sitting on my Dad's lap (really I just wanted to sit on his lap.  I thought the hearings were boring). When I registered to vote, I did it with about a dozen of my friends.  They all registered republican, so I did too.  However, I just felt it was wrong. I didn't know why.  Within the next two years, I went back twice to re-register.  First as an independent, and then as a Democrat.  I just couldn't be in the same party as the people involved in Watergate.  

    A scandal has deeper hooks than we immediately know.  That is why the republicans are so desperate to hang a scandal on "no drama Obama." It just isn't going to happen.

    The pendulum is swinging our way.
