4. This will be the response of many Bernie fans, I suspect, and it tells a lot about who really cares

about the future of the nation, and who just wants their hero to win.

Or are you opposed to the secret ballot as a concept?

in '04 bush won because a lot of people didn't like kerry -- i'm talking about dems and independents. my late husband was one of them.

10. WHOMEVER is the Nominee of the Democratic Party for POTUS...

...will have my unwavering and unending support. BOTH Secretary Clinton and Senator Sanders are head and shoulders above ANYONE the GOP will field. Anyone.

I would prefer the nominee be Senator Sanders. HOWEVER, I absolutely refuse to live with another GOP hack for POTUS. If Secretary Clinton is the nominee, I will support her candidacy through thick-and-thin!

15. I am unsure if a vote for Hillary would be any different than a vote for Rubio or Cruz....

Only the impending Trumpocolypse could make her relatively Right-Wing positions palatable.

I may vote for her, but I would need some reason to believe a Clinton White House would be substantively different than a Cruz or Rubio White House.

18. A vote for Hillary....

May have some benefit, in not being Cruz or Rubio, but I don't know for sure I won't have the same things happen. Hillary Clinton may easily "compromise," any values away.

She has said no to even the basics of a Progressive political policy package.

On this side of India it's pretty much the same as I've had in the states. I think they use mace instead of nutmeg in Tamil Nadu, which makes a huge difference.

19. Nobody needs to ask me. I will support the nominee

Because whoever wins will be the best choice in the General Election.

The primary is about deciding who the majority think is the best candidate.

The general is choosing the best government from the choices we are given.

... means giving the GOP one less vote they have to overcome to win.

So I guess I can assume that a Republican president is what you are willing to settle for?

It's not your "principles" that bugs the shit out of me - it's your obvious lack thereof.

My vote for president genuinely does not count.

45. Less people voting = Republican presidency

 

By not voting, you might as well vote for whoever the crazies on the Republican Party nominate.

Republicans THRIVE when there's a significant amount of voter apathy.

It's easy to throw a temper tantrum if your dream candidate isn't nominated when you're not one of the groups of people on the Republicans chopping block.

If by some miracle Bernie happened to become the nominee, I'd vote for him for the same reason. Contrary to the examples viewed here and elsewhere, it actually IS possible to love one candidate without hating the other.
