If Glen Greenwald is the Democratic nominee in 2016, will you vote for him?

If Glen registers Democrat, runs, and wins the primary will you vote for him or would you rather Santorum or whatever TeaPubliKlan emerges?

13. You were advised that he registered and won the Democratic primary?

Will you usher Newt Gingrich into the White House or not?

2. Of course.

I'd vote for damn near anybody who called him/herself a Democrat rather than let Santorum or the like become president. Not that I'm much of a fan of Greenwald, but just about anybody's better than Santorum.

3. Greenwald is a libertarian, with a long-term agenda to discredit Dems, so

the hypothesis "Glenn Greenwald is the Democratic nominee" will never be true, and therefore on the Chrysippian account of implication every statement

If Glenn Greenwald is the Democratic nominee then X


is true no matter what X is

Therefore, in particular, you may conclude that BOTH of the following statements are true:

If Glenn Greenwald is the Democratic nominee then struggle4progress will vote for him


If Glenn Greenwald is the Democratic nominee then struggle4progress will not vote for him


So this is a simple matter of logical tautologizing, though (of course) it is NOT very informative

6. You started from a false premise to craft a tautology of your own devising.

Of course Greenwald could join the Democratic party tomorrow and then he would be a Democrat.

8. If there were any chance in Hell Sanders could win, I'd volunteer for his campaign and

vote for him happily.

12. +1



I wouldn't vote for GG under any label, and I would officially leave the Democratic Party if he were ever allowed to even get close to our primaries.

15. It isn't a push poll, it is a yes or no question.

I asked if the hypothetical Democratic Nominee would get the vote or not in 2016.

20. Greenwald would be a great candidate.

The guy tells the truth, which isn't very popular among those who enjoy whistling by the graveyard.

For example, compare Glenn Greenwald with Cass Sunstein, the guy who was on the short-list for the Supreme Court.
