Democrat Saslaw invites Republicans to switch sides

This is interesting....

While Saslaw's proposal for moderate Republicans to cross the aisle appears to be welcoming, it would behoove anyone to do a quick search of Democrat history. As Tim Craig wrote:
Even if a moderate Republican was considering switching parties, they probably shouldn't immediately buy into Saslaw's claim that Democrats are given more freedom by the party's base to vote their vote conscious.

Last year, former Democratic state senator Benjamin J. Lambert III was defeated in the primary after he endorsed Republican George Allen in the 2006 U.S. Senate race.
Democrats are more ruthless than Republicans when it comes to wiping out their own. Check the current website by Democrats who want to remove Joe Lieberman from his leadership positions....
