Sometimes, it is important and honorable to vote for the loser. I remember coming out of a voting booth once, voting against a candidate whom I knew would win, but whom I couldn’t stand. “Well, that’s one he didn’t get,” I thought.
And I liked that feeling.
That pretty much describes my whole voting life, growing up a liberal in Grand Rapids.
And I'm also old enough to realize that the pendulum will swing back again.
Oh, and what Krugman said.
