  •  Closed primaries? Can't disagree more (none)
    How can you in good conscience make such an undemocratic suggestion?

    All primaries should be open, not closed.  If Cuellar won because a lot of Republicans voted for him then it is our fault for not getting enough dems to the polls.  Close the Dem primaries and you're also closing the GOP primaries.  In 2004 I crossed party lines to vote for McCain in VA just because I would have preferred him over Bush for president.  In fact it was primary crossing Dems that made the GOP race at all competitive in 2000  Maybe too many in this heavily dem district just don't care who represents them.

    If there is no GOP candidate to run against in 2006 general election, should we ban them from voicing there electoral opinions.  I say this because I would want the opportunity to weigh-in on a GOP primary if there were no Dem candidate in the general election.
