97. A silly issue?
The fact that I want an actual Democrat to win the Democratic nomination for president is a "silly issue?" Registering as a Democrat may be optional to vote in Arkansas, but it shouldn't be optional for someone who wants to represent the Democratic party in a national election.

If he doesn't want to be a Democrat, he doesn't have to be. But then let him run with no party affiliation. If he's not a member of the party, he isn't qualified to run on the party ticket.
