Ah yes.....another public spirited, for-the-people, selfless individual willing to give up membership in a political party that's kept him in his well paying job for the past 8 years to run for the governor's job in another state.

Wow....how self-sacrificing is that? A Democrat now holds the office of Governor of Virginia, so this humble soul is willing to not only change his political party from Democrat to Republican, but to change his state of residence from Alabama to Virginia. The man should be rewarded handsomely for acting in such a thoughtful and public spirited manner.

And the farmer hauled another load away.........

"A Democrat now holds the office of Governor of Virginia"

That will come as a surprise to Bob McDonnell, the current Republican governor of Virginia.

Just goes to show you how uninformed the LEFT really is, lightbreeze. This guys (juswondrin) whole argument falls apart before it gets out of his Lefty mind.

It's all about the money. If he comes back as a Republican, he'll get more and bigger bribes from the likes of the Kochs, Adelson, Perry (of the swift boaters) and other corporate and Wall Street fat cats who don't give a hoot about anyone not wealthy.

Who do you think you're fooling Arlen? We know it's all about your chances of being elected again. Dems don't want you and you think Republicans will. I'm betting you're gonna go extreme right just to try to appease the residents of the institution.

"If I were to leave the sidelines, it would be as a member of the Republican Party that is fighting the drift in this country in a way that comes closest to my way of thinking: wearing a Democratic label no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities," Davis wrote in a blog post. How does ANYONE think that, much less a Black man from the South? It's ind-boggling.

Good question, but he is an insider who is in all likelihood making an informed decision.

Artur Davis is scum. I say that because he has always been a Republican and is obviously an opportunist. He gets paid to defend the power establishment and promote income inequality, war profiteering, and corporate welfare. I'm not sorry to see you go.

That said, the billions in TV ads from his corporate masters are sure to get him elected.

A African American Harvard grad (with honors) former classmate of Obama changes his party affiliation because he feels it represents the best chance for improving America. He has stated he is disappointed with how things are currently being handled at the federal level. I take him at his word and wish him the best.

so - if i'm understanding the other articles i see about this switch, Black voters in Alabama were just not impressed with Mr. Davis, and he felt they did not properly appreciate him so, he's going to the GOP where he can be a rarity - well - i guess if needs the attention that badly - he'll certainly be noticed - a standout (like a sore thumb) in an almost all white party

He'll know if he's running when he gets a check from some right-wing group that will bankroll his campaign if he does exactly what they tell him to do if he's elected.

Obama didn't flip flop on his views about gay marriage, he actually advanced in his thinking. It's not the same thing as completely going against what you've said before...

The concern for all America is the lack of common sense in politics. the concept of all or nothing has stagnated our recovery. Regardless of what one feels about the Health Care Bill, it has helped millions including my family. The concept of not giving an iota regrading our neighbors is attached to the direction of the nation. This is what fear creates a division that will impact us for another decade. We cam't afford slavery to the 1% or even the 40% that have a combined wealth of $$0 Trillion with an attitude my assets need protection because I create jobs. My attitude is "prove it!"

I'm trying to decide why this is news. A former Congressmen, who lost a primary battle after 4 terms, who may or may not return to politics has switched parties. To me, this wouldn't be news no matter which party he switched from / to.

If he was announcing a run for office, a comeback, then I could see this being of news value.

He is a former friend, classmate at Harvard and supporter of the current President. It reflects a change of heart from someone who served in Congress and is not happy with the current state of affairs in Washington. I suppose thats the reason.
