55. perhaps Nader voters weren't part of the base of the party,
but I certainly considered my pro-labor, pro-choice, anti-racism, pro-poor, lifelong Democratic ass to be so. I suppose I should have learned better by now - I've voted for a non-Dem exactly twice in my life.

More consideration is given former lifelong Republicans.

Sorry, my man, but the dipshits running the party in the Clinton era lost my vote.
