RE: A Wacky Idea
Hm. Well, now it’s my turn to think out loud. Dems–>Repubs has been done before, especially in the south. But I somehow doubt such would occur here. Instead, what would probably happen is that Langevin would become characterized as an “independent” Democrat. My guess is that the “politics of the polity” in Rhode Island would be slow to change, if at all. In fact, now that I think of it, Rhode Island takes great pride in being the rebel….it’s been that way since, well, Roger Williams —> and then the Constitution! So, somehow I think most Rhode Islanders would embrace playing the part of the “rogue” state…”Rogue Island” was coined many years ago, after all.
