No Such Thing as a Spoiler

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments
Message Mark A. Goldman

It seems that presidential hopefuls Clinton and Obama are in agreement that we need and should cherish each candidates right to pursue his or her candidacy regardless of what the polls say at any one point in time. 

In other words, they don't believe there is any such thing as a "spoiler" when it comes to defending the Constitution and our Republic through one's candidacy.  All people of conscience and determination who have something to offer in the debate about our future should be part of the discussion and stick it out 'til the last vote is counted. 

Since Clinton and Obama both agree now that there's no such thing as a "spoiler" it would be fitting, proper, courageous, and right for both of these candidates to defend the right of non-party candidates, such as Ralph Nader and others, to have their voices heard during this campaign. 

The credibility of any candidate depends on his or her ability to live by their word, which is to say, to behave in a manner that is consistent with their written and spoken word. 

It's time for third and no party candidates to be heard in our national debates.  And it's time for Clinton and Obama to speak out strongly in favor of having those voices be heard.
