So he's working hard on pension reform, and now he's effectively cleaned up the DMV:

These two things alone are more than Carcieri accomplished in eight years. I'm sure more is to come.

ya know what...for the state of RI, he may not be a bad fit, he could have done much worse. He put his finger to the wind and heard what was needed and jumped in the correct line. Now he's pushing for reform of pensions for cities and towns, another solid idea.

Carcieri was a "real" Republican, there was no way he could get anything done in this state, let alone this bill.

Chafee will not get the support of the unions next time around, they will hand pick another "good ole boy" who will not disappoint them ...it will be interesting to see how he spins this reform in pensions come re-election time.

yea...he very well may be an independent. He certainly walks to a beat of his own.
