63. same here

although technically I did vote in the primary first, for Ted Kennedy.

I can count on 3 fingers the number of Democrats I voted against in my lifetime. Two of them were not real Democrats, they were Lyndon LaRouche-ites who managed to get on the Democratic ballot. The other case was Bob Casey Sr. (father of the guy now in the Senate) when he ran for Governor of PA vs. William Scranton III. This was due to my dislike of the "guru" ad run by Casey (which was actually some of James Carville's early work) and because of Casey's pro-life position. That ad, by the way, is said to have won the election for Casey. For more about that see

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/10/weekinreview/10ferrick.html?_r=0

That was in 1986 and, to date, the last Republican I ever have voted for.

41. I'm a Democrat. I'm a proud, unreconstructed, card-carrying Democrat.

And until the planet reverses its spin, I will remain a Democrat.

Yes, this is DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND but it does seem a lonelier place, lately--maybe, all the more to those of us who have been here since the beginning. It was a refuge, a place for Democrats who felt utterly helpless, as the political crime of the ages had been committed before our very eyes. An election was stolen in broad daylight and we had this place. It was a saving grace.

Democratic Underground was so much smaller back then. I wonder how many members we had by the end of 2001. In so many ways, this place is richer for having grown from a small town to a large city. Maybe, though, that's also part of the reason it feels lonelier, too.

But it became my home page the day I found it and that has never changed. It's still the first site I want to read every day. It cannot be bested as a reliable news source. It was a gem of a site, in 2001, and it's a gem of a site, today. Skinner, EarlG, and Elad have done a remarkable thing. I hope they know that.

yet you keep arguing against me.

interesting.

you are falling for the wedge issues over party

Party is more important than any wedge issue, because as long as party wins, you can debate the wedge.

If the republican/tea/libertarians win, you can't debate anything

so, as they say stop sweating the small stuff and think of the party itself

The beauty of our party is that that can mean very different things to each one of us. It's also what can make being a Democrat sometimes pretty frustrating.

You don't see that every day. My son was on that circuit for a bit, until he decided he needed to get off the road.

Anyway, yes, Democrat here, too. Ever since forever. Almost. I did "like Ike", but I was six years old when he ran for his second term. My father, however, told me that was OK, but he and Mom would be voting for Adlai. See..."I like Ike" was something that even a six year old could understand and spell. That's pretty much the intellectual level the Republicans are mostly aiming for today, as well.

Not sure when I joined though. It wasn't when I turned 18.

I remember voting for Mondale in 1984 (I was 22). Not sure what I did for the rest of the ballot. (It was just luck that I voted for Mondale. I actually flipped a coin in the voting booth - an Eisenhower dollar.) Same for 1986. I cannot remember, but I did talk to a Daschle staffer at the SD State Fair in 1985, encouraging him to run for the Senate. I remember voting for Jesse Jackson in the 1988 Wisconsin primary. So I must have been a registered Democrat by then.

My first vote was against NIXON's Tyranny and for Peace & Justice. Seems like it has been the same every time since. We keep trying to put the tyranny down and they keep re-inventing ways to perpetrate and perpetuate it.

This forum was always about a range of views on the issues and about discussion in the broadest terms. We have always had strong views expressed over the performance of many in political office and I expect that will continue. The basis of sound government is INFORMED debate, not abject hero worship.

My grandfather coached me to "just pull the Democratic lever" when I went to vote for my first time. Being a contrary cuss, I researched every politician so that I could vote on issues, not by party. I ended up voting straight Democratic ticket that year anyway, but I still voted for each rather than pulling the straight ticket lever.

It's sad to realize now that my grandfather was actually a Dixiecrat and were he alive now, would be a Republican. Thank goodness he didn't live long enough to put me through that shame.
