  •  Comment 1/21/04: "Even Lieberman" (8+ / 0-)

    One of my early comments here, I wrote:

    Even Lieberman (4.00 / 6)
    The poll gave me a moment's hesitation, but I really would even vote for Lieberman.  

    I've voted in 2 presidential elections, I guess (the only 2 there've been since I was 18).  And I voted for third-party candidates both times.  I'm from a safe state (Massachusetts); I would have voted for Gore had I been in anything less than a completely safe state, but he was too conservative for me, I didn't love his campaign, I definitely didn't love Lieberman.  I saw no reason to hold my nose while I voted.  

    This time, even though Massachusetts is still safe, I will vote for the democrat.  If I had voted Gore in 2000 it wouldn't have changed the outcome, but it would have been one more vote by which Bush lost the popular count, one more point of outrage at what is happening to our country.  This time around even though my vote won't make any more of an actual difference, I want it counted for the democrats.

    I'm not crazy about Hillary Clinton either, but she's way less of a nose-hold than Lieberman would have been.

    •  You know what a nose-hold would be (8+ / 0-)

      for me?

      A nose-hold would be voting for John Breaux or Ben Nelson or Mark Pryor for President.

      And yeah, Lieberman too.

      I wouldn't hold my nose to vote for a Ken Salazar, although I might try to avoid heavy breathing.

      But your point is well taken. I'm not crazy about Hillary, but she's so far from a nose-hold it's comical.

      Joe Lieberman likes to be called an "Independent Democrat". I like being called a "sexual dynamo".
