I don't consider myself a democrat. I would generally consider myself a liberal, though I do have some conservative views as well. I would also like to point out that the republicans threw up a good candidate (they won't, but it is possible that they could) that I would consider voting for him/her. I'm partial to democrats right now because they appear to be less insane. I will vote for the candidate who appears to be least insane, regardless of party lines.
