Statement: After years of loyalty to the Republican party, Lynn has found her way to the Village. In a Dec. 5, 2011, blog on the Huffington Post, Ms. Rothschild looked out over the yawning chasm that separates Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill and decided, like so many sensible people (i.e., Evan Bayh, Mike Bloomberg), that we need another option.

“Simply, both the political environment and the tools are in place for a total disintermediation of our political duopoly. If activated, the 'radical center' is bigger and stronger than all the vested interests and the extremists in the political parties...”


We admire Lynn's sense of noblesse oblige. The country needs more like her, so that we can put our differences aside, meet in the center and get to work on the important stuff, like privatizing education, “modifying” Social Security and entitlement programs and expanding the National Security State.
