A Vote for Jeffords

January 05, 2002

Re ''Jeffords Explains Why He Quit the GOP,'' letters, Jan. 2:

It is very hard to apply logic to the shallow reasoning of people blasting Sen. James Jeffords of Vermont; they act as if an elected official does not have the right to go against his party. I'm sure many of those same individuals were delightedly mute when the Dixiecrats (mostly elected Democrats) spurned their own party.

When I go into a voting booth (even though I am registered with a particular party) I do not feel that I must vote for only people of that party--that is blatantly ridiculous and, in my book, decidedly un-American.
