F*ck Jeffords! That spineless prick. I hope to hell we'll be able to convince Zell Miller or Max Cleland to switch parties and screw that bastard out of the committee chairmanship the Dems promised him. I'll certainly donate money to his challenger next election if this ends up costing us control of the Senate.

Note the part of the story that Jeffords meeting with George W. didn't go that well. The Press will say that this is a failure of his leadership abilities. Meanwhile, Jeffords is being stroked by Demos, Press, and Pundits alike. I would say that 'wait until 2006', but the good people of Vermont have already elected Bernie Sanders, Socialist, as their sole House member, so I doubt that they're gonna punish Jeffords. When the great Phil Gramm bolted from the Demos, he RESIGNED his seat as a DemocRat and ran and won the Special Election as a Republican! Now, that's class! Eric The Hun[>]:)]

What a POS. I hope MIerinMD is right about Miller and Cleland, although I think it is unlikely. And spineless prick sums it up. He can't get anything done, ah poor basterd so he wants to switch parties to get some attention. [:(] Pansy.

While it sounds bad - someone who switches parties was almost certainly voting that way long before he ever entertained the notion of changing his affiliation. The damage was done long ago. Same for McCain. If anything, switching his party affiliation may cost him straight ticket voters and those who deceive themselves because he calls himself a Republican.

No it is worse than that. Once he 'switches' if he does... The Senate goes to the Democrats. 51-49 They will be able to control all the different groups. Banking groups, Defense etc...

How about this?
Not all of the votes came easy. Jeffords recalled feeling the weight of history and experiencing weeks of nightmares in 1999 during Clinton's impeachment trial. "I was waking up at night screaming," he said. "I was that tense."

Woke up at night screaming over a lousy vote on Clinton's impeachment? This guy sounds pretty close to the edge, IMHO. Eric The Hun[>]:)]

The senate is now in socialist hands "WASHINGTON (CNN) -- James Jeffords, the longtime maverick U.S. senator from Vermont, has decided to leave the Republican Party, according to sources, but he decided Wednesday to travel home to the Green Mountain State to deliver the news."

I had the pleasure of working for Phil Gramm during his 1995-96 Presidential Primary run. The guy is THE REAL DEAL. The press gave him a total bum rap because they knew he was the only one who could have taken Clinton out. I still get misty-eyed thinking about it.

There is ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE that zell miller or max cleland will leave the democraps. I know these pukes from Georgia. zell was the puke who first tried to change the GA flag ten years ago. They are NOT conservatives, just brilliant policraps who know how to get elected from Georgia.

Screw Jeffords. He was a liberal, and a socialist. We need to kick more of these RINO's(Republicans in name only). I am not to worried about losing the senate. they were liberal anyway. they still have to go through both the house and the president anyway, and it really isn't that much of a difference.
Link Posted: 5/24/2001 5:27:59 PM EST
This changes nothing. We're still on our way to Fascism, not Socialism.........I keep telling you guys that it's too late to vote anyway.

So...Senate under Democrat control, House and White House still Republican. Net result: gridlock. Fine by me. The less gets done in Washington, the better off we all are.
