Sen. Lisa Murkowski is the voice of reason within the unreasonable Republican Party. I thank her for standing up for her constituency and protecting the balance of power in our government. Her interview on PBS this week made me wish that she would run for president in 2020. She just might be the first Republican I would ever consider voting for.
