Poll question: What does America need more? A Conservative Dem or Liberal Republican?
Advertisements [?]
If Mark Warner ran, he would be the model conservative Democrat for most issues. It has been a while since a real liberal REpublican ever got close to being President. If you had the choice between a liberal candidate(ie Bloomberg, Snowe, maybe Chaffee) and a conservative Democrat, who would you choose?

I personally think our nation would do really well if a Republican President helped move our country much farther to the left, rather than a Democrat who would oppose most progressive policies. Remember, TR was a Republican, at first. Name only means so much....

Poll result (46 votes)
A conservative Democrat (30 votes, 65%)Vote
A liberal Republican (16 votes, 35%)Vote
