Lincoln Chafee Wants to Challenge Hillary Clinton
by

I know so very little about Lincoln Chafee, aside from his short brush with fame when he switched parties in the Senate because it was more politically expedient to be a Democrat in the 2000s, that I had to look up several things before writing this story: whether his name is indeed “Lincoln,” exactly how many “f’s” there were in “Chafee,” and whether someone would ever really get an official photo taken with a bowl haircut. The answers are, “yes,” “one” and, “in all honesty, it was the 1990s and everyone had this haircut, it’s not his fault he looks like Bob Odenkirk.”

At any rate, Lincoln Chafee would like you to consider him for the nation’s highest office. On the Democratic ticket, in case that was unclear. 

Apparently, he’s been governor of Rhode Island for a while. Who knew?

Aside from that stunning example of executive experience, Chafee also has the distinction of being the only Republican Senator to vote against the use of military force in Iraq, he’s pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-free trade, pro affirmative action and was one of the first vocal supporters of same sex marriage. He’s one of the first Republicans to ever be saddled with the designation “RINO,” and is one of the few active and former members of Congress who is skilled a shoeing a horse.
