Open Primaries

Obviously Gov. Dean and Joe Trippi are looking for some direction. So are the thousands of Dean volunteers. Here's my suggestion.

I think the goal should be to have every Presidential Primary in the US an Open Primary by 2007.

Think about it. Independents out number big D democrats - I think. At a minimum, we are the swing vote. So why do we have to vote in November for two candidates nominated by the minorities and swayed by special interests and extremists. The minority parties should not dominate the majority.

I'm tired of it. I want every state to have open primaries. This is the biggest, most dramatic change I think we can make without getting caught up in ideology and the slime. I hope you agree. Is open?
