I don’t want too much back-and-forth, but a vote for Ralph Nader was no more irresponsible than a vote for any of the other 8 3rd-party candidates on the ballot, all of whom got the 500+ votes that Gore needed to beat Bush in Florida. And exit polling shows that Nader voters wouldn’t otherwise have voted for Gore — they would have voted for someone else or stayed home. And that’s what I really mean to say here: All Bernie supporters shouldn’t be expected to support Hillary Clinton, because we aren’t all democrats. (And of course I reject the lesser evil game, but we seem to staunchly disagree there.) Green voters aren’t Democrats in disguise, just as anti-Hillary Bernie supporters aren’t fussy Democrats.
