Yes, hard working and over achieving.
Doesn’t everyone who has one want a happy and healthy family?
I used to look at the person before the party. But today politics is so polarized, it doesn't make sense to consider individuality. Because a self thinking representative in search of finding compromise for moving forward, is no longer respected. We are now stuck in a bad marriage that we can't get out of.
I think both sides feel that way. My area is pretty mixed politically and if you can even have a halfway civil discussion in it, you find everyone is confused.
I always vote in the other party's primary, then in the party of preference in the general election.
Why the other primary? Is there a reason or just something you have always done?
Under normal circumstances in this brutally gerrymandered state, the candidate for the party of preference is obvious or even unopposed in state and local elections. I vote in the opposition's party in an effort to increase the vote for the candidate who is not the favored candidate in hopes of creating a run-off. That's when the politics become expensive and down and dirty. If my party of preference had two equally competent candidates running neck and neck, I would vote in that primary. You do not have to be registered with a party to vote in a primary.
Of course, in the general election, there is no need for those tactics.
That is a good idea, but you said cross-party. In some states, there can be two opposing candidates from the same party and none from the opposing party in the general election. Also, they make it almost impossible to vote in the other party primary.
