Party-Switcher Jim Jeffords: Done.
Vermont Senator Jim Jeffords, former Republican who bolted in early 2001 to become a Democrat in all but name ("Independent"), changing the balance of power, will not seek re-election in 2006.
While Vermont is known for its deep and abiding "blue state" politics, former Governor Howard Dean and current socialist Representative Bernie Sanders emblematic of those values, current Republican Governor Jim Douglas proves the state is not entirely a lost cause.
Jeffords' announcement shakes up the field in Vermont, changing the dynamics significantly. It also indicates that Jeffords likely does not believe Republicans will lose their majority status in the Senate anytime soon.
Ultimately, though, the odds of Jeffords' Senate seat going to a Democrat in 2006: HIGH.
Meanwhile, Alexander K. McClure posits:
Critical will be the decision of the Democratic Party. Will it support Sanders and be perceived as supporting a socialist, or will it field a liberal candidate that would take votes from Sanders?

The review of the Bernie Sanders article was like fingernails on a chalkboard. Americans need to realize discussions such as Bernie Sanders are like going down a road to nowhere!... This kind of talk should encourage all Americans to leave the room! This country has encouraged all Americans to build wealth. These socialistic ideas don't help, but only hinder our economy. Discouraging people to save and to invest!... Socialism and Communism has never worked. The Dems. and Liberals have sabotaged business people small and large alike... It is typical for socialists to make people feel desperate and guilty! That is what Socialism is about. Wealth is for government not individuals!!

Just what our country needs is another liberal, socialistic, communist Senator...
