broken glass Republican
 n.— «Polls show New York voters are not incensed by the thought of Clinton running for president two years into a second Senate term, but the notion still enrages so-called “broken glass” Republicans. That term was coined in 2000 to describe those supposedly so intent on wiping out all traces of the Bill Clinton administration that they would be willing to do anything, including walk over broken glass.» —“Clinton opponents’ talk of ‘08 should play well with donors” by Devlin Barrett in Washington, D.C. Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.) Aug. 31, 2005.
