Sounds about right. I think the problem here is admitting there are, if you believe playing the election game matters, two really really bad choices this time around. (And two more bad choices.) Someone here seems to think it's one really really bad choice -- and I can't think of much worse than global nuclear war, though it's still probably unlikely and won't be a showstopper for humanity IMO -- and one so so choice. Instead of just admitting they're both really really bad, he's ignoring valid reasonable concerns others have.
