For what it's worth, at a lunch gabfest at the Nation's offices recently,
Jerry Brown announced that he no longer considers himself a Dem. When he
moved from SF to Oakland, for the first time in his life, he registered as
an independent. He was quite vicious about the party, which upset quite a
few people around the table. From my point of view, it was a fine
performance (though I'm certainly no fan of JB's).
