Yesterday I ran this interview with Matthew Dowd, who spearheaded former President George W. Bush’s re-election campaign and now wants to be the Democratic lieutenant governor of Texas.
The interview raised a question that I want to propose to you for this open discussion thread: What do you think is the proper place and role for Republican defectors to the Democratic Party?
Or, to cite a trenchant tweet I noticed, are Republican converts gentrifying the Democratic Party?
