Even as Bernie Sanders grasps the political reality and reportedly begins cutting staff, some of his supporters—many who hated Hillary Clinton already, many others who have been trained to hate her during the past year's campaign—are declaring that they will never vote for her. The implication is they'd rather vote for probable rival Donald Trump (or Ted Cruz), or that they will vote for a candidate with no chance of winning, or that perhaps they'll abstain entirely. Regardless, the result would be that either a Democrat (Hillary) or a Republican (Trump, Cruz) would win anyway.
I appreciate public figures like (former Bernie supporter) Anne Rice and now George Takei for taking on the #NeverHillary movement. I understand it must be hard to pick from two figures you dislike or even fear, but I can tell you this: If somehow the horrible Jim Webb had won the Democratic nomination, I'd have held my nose and voted for him over Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.
Taking it a step further, if somehow the only two possible winners were Trump or Cruz, I would vote for one of them.Can you guess which one I find less terrifying?
