    "Democrats are in danger of taking independent voters for granted, says Third Way, the centrist Democratic think tank. To that end, the group has a new report that looks at independent voters and concludes that they are, in fact, independent. That’s a contrast to the argument of some analysts who say most independents are really Democrats or Republicans in disguise. Some 40% of voters will say they are independents, but some analysts say most of them are actually firmly in one camp or the other. This report argues that while many independents will say they lean Democratic or Republican, they are actually persuadable and open to either party."

    Roll Call profiles No Labels, saying it pushes cooperation in government through rule reforms. Sounds about right.

    I have been watching politics since my first vote in 1972. Like most people of my era, I started radical, but when I married and started raising a family my views became more mainstream. Over the years I have voted for Democrats, Republicans, Independents and third party candidates, and in most of those years, Congress worked together with the President to pass a budget and laws in the best interests of the country. It didn’t matter whether the president was of the same party as both houses. Bills were proposed and passed, and the business of the country, and more importantly the citizens, moved forward. In the past few years however, I have noticed that the 2 major parties have become more split and antagonistic to each other.
