Should we vote for a 'loser' candidate?

Posted: Tuesday, August 21, 2007

People keep telling me about favorite candidates they won't vote for if they think those candidates can't win. They're afraid to waste their vote. I'm guilty of the same, but I don't buy it anymore. It amounts to telling our kids "think outside the box" and then shunning favorite candidates for doing just that.

I've decided that candidates who give voice to what I believe in earn my respect and my vote - win or lose. If politicians don't like people such as myself splitting the vote, maybe they need to start following the losers.

I want choices that I haven't been getting from the winners.
