    We only want Mitt to slime fellow republicans, not slither into the White House.  One overprivileged, drunken frat brat as president per century please.

        Because Romney is a practicing Mormon, that is a real low blow, which, of course, is accurate.

      This is a bad idea. Back in 2000 by the time the Ohio primary rolled around there was this silly idea that Democrats should vote in the Republican primary for McCain since Gore had it locked up & it was a way to slow Bush down or some such nonsense, signifying nothing. Many Democrats I know bought this and congratulated themselves on how clever they were, making their votes "count" more than otherwise. In their minds I think gelled the impression that McCain "is a good guy."

      McCain was never anything but a hard-right troglodyte, despite occasional political triangulating for the moment, and today we see there's still a idea out there among a few "progressives" that McCain is some kind of viable alternative. I've seen "if Hillary wins, I'm voting for McCain" here more than once. Also, to hear some analysis of the NH results, "independents" may have voted for McCain because they figured Obama had it in the bag. That is very weird binary logic, a confusion fostered I think by these misguided strategic plays too clever by half.

      Friends don't encourage friends to vote Republican.

      •  Yeah, but thats (0+ / 0-)

        not actually an argument against this movement. You'll notice that Mccain still didn't win despite their actions, and bush's victory was almost certainly completely unrelated. If they had succeeded they may indeed have slowed bush down a little, but does nothing to speak to this issue.

        Independants voted for Mccain in new hampshire because they actually like him. This is very very different.

      •  I hate to underestimate the stupidity... (0+ / 0-)

        of the American public (See Election 2000, Election 2004) in general, but I think that progressives can get it right and not accidentally vote for Mitt in November (not to mention the fact that he is unlikely to be the nominee).

        I love the vote Mitt in MI idea.  Even though it seems Rovian, we are not hiding what we are doing, we are doing it out in the open.

        It's high time progressives fought back with some balls.

      Yes, such a reminder is needed.  Alas.
