Dems as Independents

January 23rd, 2006 8:39 AM

There was an interesting article in the Floridian Gainesville Sun over the weekend. Said the article,

"The statements sound like a refrain from a third-party independent like Ross Perot or Ralph Nader:

'I think we are living in a time where there is a remarkable abuse of power in Washington and Tallahassee,' the candidate told reporters earlier this month. 'People are so hungry for change because they don't feel a part of what happens up here.'"

The candidate being, of course, a Democratic contender for governor. With portrayal of the Democrats as the party of anti-corruption becoming an increasingly common phenomenon, perhaps John Kerry will be the next "anti-insider independent."
