    The parties have actually grown to resemble each other LESS, as the GOP has become unacceptably extreme to more and more people. Like it or not, party ID is a key way people identify candidates who line up with their beliefs.

    I have never seen a Democrat "stealth candidate" run to try as a Republican to dupe Republicans into voting for them, and with the gap between parties diverged into a chasm, that would be virtually impossible now. Most "stealth candidates" ry to be blank slates to to try to conceal extremist views — which are those of the GOP, not the ridiculously moderate often too timid Democratic Party.

    Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.
