"I" is OK, unless you're "R" or "D"

A couple weeks ago Shreveporter Lennis Elston wrote an opinion piece in The Times saying it’s OK for a candidate to use the word “I.”

“Now they say, ‘If we are elected, we will do thus and so.’ Who is ‘we’ anyway?’” she wrote.
As I sit here transcribing interviews with several of the candidates on the Nov. 7 ballot, her words come back to me: “I” is OK!

We are in the race for change …”

We are looking to …”

We believe if we are elected …”

The only thing I can figure is heaven forbid voters confuse these staunch Republicans and Democrats for Independents.
