Dems; are there any Republicans you actually respect/admire?

I'm not saying as much as your preferred candidates, but are you strongly against ANY Republican?

I wouldn't say I'm against ANY republican, but the moderate ones have been so marginalized by the hard core conservatives that their views never come out in the open.

Think of it this way. A normal republican 20-30 years ago would be a blue dog democrat today.

Dwight D Eisenhower, McCain-pre-2002, HW Bush.

False. A normal Republican from 20-30 years ago would be labeled a socialist by the conservative right today.

Do you mean a Republican who currently holds elected office or just any Republican individual?

Active Republicans? Colin Powell, Bob Gates. Though I guess they're not considered "active" since both of them are out of government.
