John "purple hearted" Kerry...what a sleazeball..
Anyway, at this point in time we need to make inroads with any and all conservatives/libertarians. I really dont care what happened almost a decade ago if their last name isnt Cheney/Bush/Graham/ or McCain. Conservatives have renounced the Bush family dynasty entirely-except for a few Rush dittoheads. The chatter and momentum is there for a conservative/libertarian coalition party, with possibly the Constitional and Libertarian Parties merging if the ego maniacs in the LP would calm down.
Freedom Party 2014/2016 or Rand 2016.
