The Question (ID Number 502)...

    There's a lot of upheaval about Gore losing the election because of Nader's supporters. As citizens concerned about this planet, what should we do? It is an important decision to make, and I believe many would appreciate your thoughts.

    ...and the response:

    This is a perennial debate that arises over third-party candidates. The question is, should one "throw away" one's vote on a candidate who can't win or vote for a candidate who is merely the lesser of two evils? I'm afraid I have no magic formula that will get voters off the horns of this dilemma. Personally, I consider the possibility of a Bush presidency an exceptionally ugly prospect and so would not be inclined to throw away my vote just to make a gesture that will ultimately have no measurable effect. But this, as I say, is just my personal inclination.
