    a candidate, based on what you think other people are going to like. Isn't that how we ended up with John "I would still have voted to invade Iraq" Kerry? I still have nightmares about the 2004 election, and what might have been had we picked a nominee that didn't take the whole issue of Iraq off the table.

    Pick a candidate based on your own values, and at least you'll be true to yourself, however things end up.
