You forgot the guilt ridden, main stream media watching Independents most of which I've always thought were liberal Democrats. Independent means fence sitter. I want to be wooed with lies about hope and change because Bush was such a bad president.
Anyone who is afraid of being affiliated with a political name because they're unhappy with that parties actions needs to get their common sense hat back on. You change a party from within the name is nothing more than a means to do that.
