  •  Oregon hasn't elected a Republican to statewide (6+ / 0-)

    office since Republicans proved themselves to be extremists. We used to vote for moderate Republicans like Hatfield and Packwood, but Gordon Smith only ever sounded like a moderate at election time.  He quickly toed the Party line and voted like a good little GOPosaur, exactly as the GOP leadership told him to..

    Also, too, even in state offices, we had our fill of GOP obstructionism back in the late 80s and 90s. We watched in disbelief while the state GOP leadership would rather punish their own members by de-funding programs for their districts than allow any of their caucus to work with Democrats on any legislation.  We are only now beginning to recover from that toxic madness.
