U.S. Sen. Lincoln Chafee, a Republican moderate from Rhode Island, said publicly Monday what other GOP lawmakers have admitted privately: he might not vote for President Bush in the Nov. 2 election.
Good for him! In a party that didn't even bother to field other candidates this time (uh yeah, Democracy) it is very pleasing to see someone stand up and say he won't support GWB. Being a Republican or a Democrat does not mean you have to mindlessly follow your superiors every move. Our government needs more people like Chafee who will take a stand.
