Good Primary News

Even a Democratic Socialist like me could not object to Lincoln Chafee winning in RI yesterday. Like Olympia Snowe et al, he is a remnant of a Republican Party that was not dependent on Christian Evantgelical votes, and that was opposed to corruption in government. [No dispassionate observer of American systems can doubt the massive ability of Democrats to be corrupted.]

Less noted in the news was the the Democratic Socialist representative of Vermont, Bernie Sanders, effectively won in Vermont's senatorial primary. Given he is the most popular politician in that state, that means there will be a Democratic Socialist senator come November.
