Obama proves what happens when a seemingly once-a-generation chance for reform is sabotaged. Sanders, with a cleaner, more progressive record, is grabbing the reform baton. The nomination aside, his disruption puts another fat nail what knee-jerk Democrats revere as "ironclad" logic: the lesser evil conundrum. How many faux reformers who reify the status quo must fail before we move on to a better model for getting better leaders?

At least Bush-Cheney and Rove were perfectly clear about their agenda: that the end justified the means, and that ruthless means were what these diabolical "realists" most trusted. Bully for neocon consistency, but not virtue or respect for what America desperately needs. Recognizing a manifestly greater evil obligates a humane voter to search out good and abandon any truck with lesser evils, however charming or slightly less horrendous. Time to transcend all "lesser evils" for the "greater good."
