I'd be happy to have him, but isn't he ultra-liberal?
Socially, I'd say so. Fiscally he's fairly moderate. Reminds me a lot of Jim Jeffords.
Yeah, and didn't he caucus as a Democrat after becoming and Indy?
Yeah, but from your stance, would you rather have someone who will caucus with you when you have the majority or a progressive?
Because the only Republican who has a remote chance is focusing on Michaud's seat, and he's not as skilled as Olympia Snowe or Susan Collins.
