FLASHBACK VIDEO: Sen. Chris Koster’s Party Switch Press Conference

“At the age of 42, I’ve come to a fork in the road. At such a juncture a man can change his beliefs in order to preserve his party, or a man can change his party in order to preserve his beliefs. Today I choose the latter. I’m a Democrat.” –Chris koster (8-1/07)

A lot, (not all) of the Democrats are wondering this morning if Attorney General Chris Koster IS really one of them. Koster filed a brief yesterday supporting the belief that mandating people buy health insurance is unconstitutional. The Missouri Democrat Party’s blog FiredUp Missouri called the news “disappointing” while the communists over at the St. Louis Activist Hub called for Koster to have a primary opponent next year:

I don’t think the Democratic party should tolerate statewide officials undermining the party. I have no interest in voting for Koster after this pathetic pandering. I hope people who actually believe in the values of the Democratic party can find a good primary challenger who would at least give us a decent candidate to vote for in November 2012.
