Mark Warner and the "Radical Centrist"
As much fighting that's been going on back and forth between Dems and Repubs this election season, it is a bit refreshing to hear about someone trying to straddle the middle. His name is Mark Warner, ex-governor from Virginia who is making a run for the U.S. Senate. We were invited to a small gathering of friends and supporters to hear him first-hand, and we found him a lot more impressive than when we last heard him at the Democratic National Convention.
Warner's sells himself as a "centrist" and his goal if elected is to create a bi-partisan caucus of Democrat and Republican "radical centrists" who will focus on tackling, together, the sticky issues of energy, health care, Wall Street reform, etc. Imagine both sides working together. Well, we think he's sure to win in November. As to pulling together his "radicals,"we wish him the very best.
