I don't understand why more candidates don't do this. It makes a lot of sense to me. Why waste your resources fighting in a primary, catering to a base that you have to then move away from during the general election? Once a candidate has strong name recognition, it seems like they could leave the party (with a wink and a nod) and save themselves the hassle.

Lieberman is a perfect example, though he did it out of necessity rather than a planned strategy. I guess there are just too many people that vote the party line and too much money in the party coffers.


There are probably a lot of voters who are tired of the division in this country that will follow Bloomburg and jump ship as well. He probably has a good chance.

Bloomberg is a political hermaphrodite. The Republican Party has lost nothing with his defection. Better he should muddy the Dem water.
