It seems a significant number of Americans are torn about voting for Hillary. They know Trump is not just deranged and dishonest, but mean as a rattlesnake and would be profoundly dangerous as commander-in-chief. But Clinton, they insist, is deeply flawed, too, as we are reminded every single day. So a pox on both their houses -- yes, even if it gives Trump the presidency.
I must say straight out this seems to me folly of the greatest kind.
But it's an old predicament in American politics, usually played out not among millions of people but among the embarrassingly small number of genuine leftists in the country, with a few of us foreign pinkos looking on from the sidelines. If we can't get a real progressive candidate, fuggetabout the whole election.
