CHAFEE SEES THE LIGHT….Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee says he won’t be voting for George Bush in November:
In heavily Democratic Rhode Island, he has been a Republican since birth; his parents named him Lincoln after the first Republican president. He says he is waiting for the moderate wing of the party to rise again; in the meantime, he was asked if he went to bed at night wondering how he could remain a Republican.
“Yes,” he said, “I don’t deny that.”
Hmmm. I wonder if he could be persuaded to have a little chat with the senators from Maine…?
