John Avlon on Centrism in the USSave this online in Del.icio.us. [?] Vote For this Post
John Avlon is a well-known centrist and moderate, who authored The Independant Nation. He writes for national newspapers, and his most recent article has been reprinted at The Moderate Voice. It discusses why so many Americans are declaring themselves independants, moderates, and so on.
Amid the media attention that has followed liberal and conservative blogs, the dramatic increase in the number of self-identified centrist blogs has been comparatively ignored. These are decidedly more difficult to pigeonhole - that's largely the point - but their rise indicates much the same thing as the 300% increase in the number of independent registered voters across the nation since 1994: There is an increased alienation from partisan politics as usual that the established parties have tried to ignore.
It's a good, easily digestible read.
