“Being better than McCain is just so damn easy . . .

that if that’s the only standard Obama is held to, he’ll hardly have a political incentive to get out of bed in the morning.” – John Schwenkler, who, further, notes, compellingly, that “[y]ou don’t have to be as hard-line (or is it cynical?) as Thoreau to think that pulling your support from a candidate who broke his promises and sold you down the river on one of the issues you care about most is one of the best tools you have for affecting real political change.”
