When I voted last week I was tempted to write in "yellow dog" for the prosecutor's race (many Southern Democrats once said they would vote for a yellow dog before they would vote for a Republican). I have done this in the past. It was a mistake then as it would have been now. Such an act only adds to the pathological partisan paralysis that is gripping Washington and much of our nation. We lefties cannot expect the righties to be reasonable if we do not. If David McEachran has been doing such a good job for so long in such a highly liberal community that he is unopposed, we lefties should accept the fact that a Republican can be a good public official (my yellow-dog hands almost cramped as I typed this). Also, maybe the prosecutor's position should not be a partisan elected position? How would or should a Democratic prosecutor perform their duties differently from a Republican one?
