I'm in deep cover here in Bay Area. It's a family tradition - one of my ancestors (distant) was Chief Justice and ran against Lincoln for the Republican nomination. But don't worry - my values have nothing in common with modern Republicans. Neo-con philosophy I find abhorent, it has nothing to do with real Republicanism. I did not support Bush and opposed the Iraq war. Part of my Republicanism is monetary/selfish - the low tax, fiscal prudence thing that Bush has abandoned. I think Hagel is a good man and would support his candidacy. I like to say "I didn't leave the party, the party left me". Cheers.
