Doug Wright on Throwing Away Your Vote

I listened to the Doug Wright Show this morning.  He was adamant that all voters should vote for a “viable” candidate rather than the candidate they believe to be best fit for office.  He claimed it is more important than ever to vote strategically in the upcoming election.

No matter how I vote (and how all of Doug’s listeners vote), this state will vote for McCain, and only divine intervention would stop that.  This state is extremely (and I believe excessively) loyal to the republican party.  So why shouldn’t I vote for the person I believe should win?  No matter how I vote, I can’t change my state’s electoral vote.  All I can do with my vote for president is try to reduce my state’s excessive loyalty to the republican party.

    for one person’s perspective on how you can make a decision to support Obama AND vote for John McCain. Feel free to forward this to any “undecided” voters you know of. This will be a VERY close election and we need every single vote we can get.

    Demonizing Obama will get us a few votes (and also lose us at least a few votes) but I hope that a rational, positive thought process will persuade a few people who are still on the fence.
