In an unlikely marriage of desire to secede from the United States, two advocacy groups from opposite political traditions — New England and the South — are sitting down to talk.
Tired of foreign wars and what they consider right-wing courts, the Middlebury Institute wants liberal states like Vermont to be able to secede peacefully.
Now that's a real "strange bedfellows" story.
The U.S. Constitution does not explicitly prohibit secession, but few people think it is politically viable.
Uh, what? Was this not decided by the Civil War?
