There many good reasons to vote for a candidate. Is his or her supposed electability one of them? I do not think so. However, until I decided to support a Muslim candidate's campaign for public office, I had not seriously considered the ethics of this question (see Electability Revisited). Effectively, the Muslim candidate's opponents argued that because he was a Muslim he could not be elected.
Elect-ability depends solely on the American people. If we allow the MSM to convince us that we really have no choice, we have our own stupidity and gullibility to blame! That's it! What will it take to convince you?
