39. I came to DU when people were defending
Nader's run in 2000.

I go back to 1980 when the left abandoned Carter for Teddy (whom I preferred), which helped us get Saint Reagan.

I go back even further to 1968 when I held my nose and voted for Humphrey (in spite of the Chicago convention nightmare) over Nixon.

So, yes, I am for Team D because the alternative has been so much worse every time I got disillusioned with the Dem.

I will complain about specific issues that I don't agree with, but I have not personally had any problems with airline security nor have I seen anyone else have a problem and I have traveled across country on two separate occasions in the last two months. I'm very grateful that I am not the hysterical type and that I don't believe hysterical hype.
