Reed has the wrong German election in mind. The one that mattered was 
the April 1932 Presidential election, in which von Hindenburg was the 
lesser evil who defeated Hitler. Nine months later, von Hindenburg 
appointed Hitler. That was the election in which the true meaning of 
lesser evil voting was exposed.

As for the failed KPD-SPD coalition, Reed can blame the KPD, and only 
the KPD, all he wants. The problem with such an argument, as Louis 
Proyect pointed out last month, was that the SPD worked through the 
Twenties to create the conditions for Hitler's triumph when it was in 
power. So they're to blame as well.
