Cheers for a democrat??

My hat's off to NY's new senator, Kirsten Gilibrand. She stood up for what she thought was right when discussing gun violence. Apparently, some folks walked out. I hope she stands up to the current establishment in this continuing battle. Maybe conscience will prevail in this young lady and she'll realize that her beliefs and those of her party are at odds.
She won't be the first to have a change of heart as to political attachments. The "Great Communicator," Ronald Reagan was at one time a Democrat until he realized that their party line was no longer what he believed. He became the icon of the Republican party, bringing it to what is arguably the highest point of success in its recent history.
