29. That's just life in the real world.
We rarely get to make choices that are perfect good vs. perfect evil. There are almost always shades of gray. We can evaluate candidates against the ideal principles we have, but we only get to choose between the available candidates if we want to vote. That's not the same as the "by any means" hyperbole.
