What The Heck…

August 24th, 2003

What the heck is Feinstein thinking? She is urging people to vote “no” on the recall–good enough–but she is also suggesting that one should not vote for a candidate on the second part of the ballot, should the recall come through.

This makes no sense whatsoever. From a logical and strategic standpoint, it is nonsense–you only help the chances of Republicans to win California. If you’re there voting on the recall issue, it takes almost no extra effort at all to choose a name on the second part of the ballot. As a statement against the recall in itself, it is useless; perhaps if the recall were voted down and most people did not vote for a replacement, it might appear as a symbol of faith in Davis–but such a symbol would be nearly meaningless, and would seem like a slam against Bustamante, the main Democratic candidate.

So I have little idea where Feinstein is going with this; I only know that I heartily disagree. Vote, both against the recall and for Bustamante.
