First off, the tactics being used between Clinton and Obama are shameful. It's always comforting to know that, even though we're on the same side, we're not really on the same side. I thought the Democratic platform was to browbeat the Republicans, right?
Second, once again, here comes Ralph Nader. Are we really so surprised? Needless to say, as a hopeless liberal, I did waste a vote on him once (Green party, if you must know), but at some point we all come to our senses and realize that a vote for a "non" party is a vote for the major party that you dislike most. Every vote for Nader detracts from the Democratic party candidate.
Of course, if we actually had more than just the two "legitimate" parties, politics might not be half bad. Unfortunately for America, however, everything seems to come down to "us" versus "them."
