    tent, in fact a rather huge tent. We find at our local Democratic meetings, we have a wide variety of Democrats represented, some are more conservative while others are moderate, liberal and so on.

    In fact, our GOTV for President Obama, we had a number of Republicans for Obama represented who did fabulous work for the campaign with their phone calls and canvassing. We had many volunteers who were Democrats but also a ton of Independents, particuarly college students. But none of that matter as we are all united in getting out the vote for Democrats.

      But I won't be registering or allying myself too closely with the party. I have no allegiance, it's only the way I am choosing to go now given the circumstances currently.

      But i see just how destructive the GOP has been and won't be voting in that direction any time soon.

        will not join a political and she is a registered independent and before that, a registered libertarian. We both volunteered for the Obama campaign. So one can be a progressive and align themselves with many of the Democratic Party's platform but not be a registered Democrat.  That is quite common these days with so many registered Independents or those registered to a third party.
