I'm not really all that mysterious

Election 2016

I know people in swing states who supported Ralph Nader during the 2000 election get a lot of crap for allowing the Bush administration to happen, but, really, Al Gore ran a crappy campaign and the SCOTUS overruled the popular vote. Obviously, the people who actually voted for Bush deserve the brunt of the blame for that administration.

So I’m not going to discourage anyone from voting for Bernie Sanders even if it means that a Republican might end up in the White House, because ultimately what needs to happen is that HRC had better run a much better campaign than Al Gore did in 2000 and a much better campaign than when she ran in 2008. (And hopefully the SCOTUS will stay the hell out of it.)
