To the Valley News:
I was very happy to read your editorial "The plight of the moderate candidate." This expresses better than I could the feelings which I have had for some time. Many years ago (I'm in my 80's) I considered myself to be a Republican. I really don't feel that I left the Republican party, but that it left me. If there were to be a presidential election today with any or all of the current candidates of all parties on the ballot, I would look for the "None of the above" line.
Thanks again for your editorial. It's heartening to know that there are some moderate thinkers who don't feel as though any party has a monopoly on good (or bad) ideas, and that compromise is not always bad.
