  •  The bottom line (1+ / 0-)

    Sadly, your bottom line is more of the same:

    "I will vote for the Democratic nominee, of course."

    Because it is precisely that line that keeps driving the Democratic Party further and further to the right. No matter how reactionary the candidate, the Republican candidate will always be "worse." And so you'll find yourself voting for a Hillary Clinton whose position on Iraq, Iran, Cuba, or any foreign issue is for all intents and purposes indistinguishable from Bush aside from the competence question, and whose position on domestic issues may sound a lot better than Bush, but when you vote for her you'll get "the end of welfare as we know it," medical care "reform" that ends up empowering and enriching the pharmaceutical companies more than it benefits the people, and so on.

    If there's nothing you can't not tolerate, then that's what you end up settling for...nothing.
