    Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, but even he lost an election.  Subsequently, Chafee resigned from the GOP and supported Obama for President.  Chafee is probably a Republican who even I would vote for.  The man stood up against the Iraq War, and that's something that many Democrats were too cowardly to do.  I think that Northeasterners just don't like fanatics and ideologues.  Most people prefer practical people who do what works.  Yes, we have our nutjobs and crooks too.  We've certainly had our share in Connecticut, but I still like living here.  I especially like being surrounded by New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and the Atlantic Ocean.  What I don't like is that it's expensive to live in Connecticut, but I've lived here since I was one year old.
