Lincoln's Philosophy

Most people decide which party to join based on their political principles or based on attempting to win elections in a partisan political environment. What led Lincoln to becoming a Republican? He didn't think Chris Dodd hated Castro enough:

"Incidentally," Norlinger writes. "The Miami Republican Lincoln Diaz-Balart once told me that Dodd had much to do with his becoming a Republican — with his leaving the Democratic party for the Republican."

We really need someone to challenge this guy in 2008.
