Ontario, Canada eh?
I was watching "Driving Miss Daisy" and after it I was wondering if there are any Jewish Republicans. I'm certainly not anti semantic, just curious. Would it be a fair assumption that most Jewish people are liberals or left leaning?

Of course, there's Henry Kissinger.

I think you're correct, Jewish people tend to be democrats... however, Jewish and Republican aren't mutually exclusive. Two that come to mind are...

Ben Stein - columnist, actor, attorney

Alan Greenspan - former chairman of the Federal Reserve

Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN)...formerly a Democrat... is also Jewish.
Al Franken may run against him in 2008 (for real!) :tinfoil:
