Response to bunnies (Reply #85)

88. None of us have any idea how she really voted

 

But when people know their vote doesn't truly matter (Obama lost KY by 16% in 2008 and by 22% in 2012), then I understand why they might decide to cast a vote of the conscience, and support a third party candidate (Nader ran in 2008, and Jill Stein ran on the Green party ticket in 2012). That's democracy in action.

Yet the very NOTION that she didn't vote for Obama sends you and other into conniptions. That's not being a good Democrat, that's being pathetically partisan.
