    soul; it's politics. Politics, as they say, is the art of the possible. We need to find a way of changing what is percieved as possible.

      That may be my failing, but it's who I am.  When I vote for someone, I make myself part of what they have done and will do.  I can't see it any other way.

      •  seems like there can't be very much that (0+ / 0-)

        you support, since there's very little in this world, at least in my experience, that so closely approaches the perfect, or even the acceptable.

        I rarely find something that is in the realm of humans I couldn't critique to make it better, but it's just as often the best available choice in this day and age.

        When it comes to the beauty of waves on the beach, or a sunset, or a snowy hillside, or a hummingbird, then there's no need for critique.

        But in the world of people and man made things... everything's up for critique and improvement, isn't it?

          Here's what I wrote just two comments up:

          Florida, as always, will be close and trust me I'm far from oblivious to that.  I sincerely don't know yet how I will vote in the presidential race yet.  It's not like I haven't stained my soul in the past with votes for the least of two evils.  But I don't know if I can do that again.
          If you see insistence upon perfection in thwt then I just don't know what to say.
