There was never a better time for leftists to vote their consciences: Green, micro-sect, Nader as an independent, whatever. Because a Democratic loss and a Republican victory are no longer a threat of any sort. No, this is a consummation devoutly to be wished. When the Democrats lose the presidency, then the Dems remaining in Congress might remember how to resist the worst sort of capitalist depredations at home and suicidal/imperialist forays into the rest of the world--for strictly partisan reasons, of course, since they have no principled reasons. 

BUT WAIT! A vote for the Green candidate is a vote for Obama, and might keep Mitt Romney from gaining the White House! So here's the watchword for 2012: hold your nose and vote for the Republican.
