: I understand where you're coming from, and don't totally disagree, but there is a definite difference between the Democrats and Republicans,
SDF: Not really. Shrub has dropped the Christian Coalition. I wouldn't expect anything different from him than from Gore.
: and my main concern is the makeup of the Supreme Court under the next President. Rehnquist, O'Connor, Ginsburg, and Stevens all stand a good chance of leaving the Court, and there is a hell of a difference between the moderates like Souter, and lunatics like Scalia, and I guarantee you that Bush (or McCain or Forbes) will appoint Scalias, while Bush or Bradley would appoint Souters. For that reason alone, even if they're all globalizing capitalists, I'm voting for Gore or Bradley;
SDF: Go! Go! WTO!
The Democrats are capable of doing all of the things the Republicans want to do, only the Democrats are cleverer at it, because they put all the phony liberals to sleep first. The environmental movement has been asleep since Clinton became President.
You all know that if a third-party candidate earns 5% of the vote, he or she gets matching funds... but, hey, if you prefer the domination of the one-party system, don't give anyone hope...
: for the Senate and Congress, I'll vote for the best person, even if it's a third party. The fact is, a Democrat or Republican will be our next President, and the Supreme Court is far too important to sacrifice to uncompromising principles.
SDF: I'm sorry, were you defending any principles here? I must have missed it.
