    Aside from the fact that it really *really* won't make any difference for
    the next four years, those who desire a progressive movement in the
    U.S. have to make up their mind. There will not be any such movement
    until the Democratic Party is destroyed. Its only purpose in existing is
    to act as a barrier to such a movement. Anyone who voted for Gore
    in 2000 in effect cast a vote to someone to the right of Buchanan
    in 2012.
    I'll be 82 by that election, but Coxes who make it to 70 usually make
    it to 85+ so I may be around to sneer at those who are at that time
    claiming that some mild overt racist is really the lesser evil.
