Democrats Cross the Line
According to a report by MSNBC on Friday February 29th 2008 Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton announced that they will work with the Republican Party in order to better the country. This is a clear move across the middle of the political spectrum. According to Randall Holcomb author of Public Sector Economics, both parties in an election will begin their campaign on their respective sides and slowly move towards the middle of the two parties, and will eventually make moves across the middle in order to gain voters from the opposite side. Clearly both democratic campaigners are moving in this direction, crossing party lines in order to capture the other side. As a result many republicans have already indicated they will vote outside their party.
