I identified as Republican most of my life. However, the Tea Party base now rules the day, and moderates like me are persona non grata. Of late, even John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Tom Coburn are being blasted as not pure enough.
I think of all the remarkable Republicans I’ve admired, or at least respected, over the years. Some were true giants.
Ben Nighthorse Campbell.
George HW Bush.
Kay Bailey Hutchison.
I miss those folks.Leave a comment
