I Used to Be a Republican

(10/25/06 9:00am)

I have a confession to make. It's not something I share very regularly -- not because I'm ashamed of it, but because it requires a conversation long enough to explain the context. My confession is this: I used to be a Republican. Not a George W. Bush Republican, but a Republican nonetheless. Had I been able to vote back in 1996 and 2000, my 11- and 15-year-old selves would have voted for Bob Dole and George Bush respectively (my seven-year-old self thought that Ross Perot was really cool). I believed in "compassionate conservatism," and deep down I still do. I was happy to see Mitt Romney become my governor in 2002, but soon afterwards, I lost faith in the Grand Old Party. I couldn't tell you the exact moment, but it was sometime between the 2002 midterm elections and the Democratic Presidential primaries in early 2004.
