Walter Corey BS: Kyoto: Was US right to ditch the deal? (128* d) RE: BS: Kyoto: Was US right to ditch the deal? 03 Apr 01


I don't see that it makes a whit of difference where you voted for Nader, It was the vociferous support of people in all 50 states that convinced him to hang in there to the bitter end. I am relieved that more people in "safe" states didn't rely on their neighbor's "safe" votes for Gore, so that they could indulge their protest vote for Nader. Bush might have gotten the mandate that he now lacks (not that it's making much difference right now).

I voted for Gore in Maine, so I counted electorally. Did a friend who voted the same in Texas waste a vote? Of course not. Together we gave Gore a moral victory that may eventually mean something if the national Democratic leadership ever comes out of hibernation and starts waving it in Bush's face. It is too bad that we could not have counted on our friends who wished to "send a message" to add to that victory. The Popular vote is the only crutch we've got right now. Only when we realize that politics is indeed the "art of the possible" can we start to blunt some of the havoc that this appointed president is wreaking
