6. For an indie to win an election with 53% of the vote is very impressive.

Reminds me of Senator Sanders, who won when he ran for Mayor, even though Democrats and Republicans joined hands to back one candidate against him.

Also like Sanders, King will caucus with Democrats.

Seems more like Sanders than like Lieberman.

According to his wiki, there were rumors that he had made a deal with Dems, though he denied that.

Sounds as though he will be very interesting to watch.

Since 2010, when Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, I have refused a few requests for donations on the ground that the Democratic Party has gone much too far right for my tastes.
