As I recall, this is exactly the point that Ralph Nader was making when he ran as an Independent against both George Bush and Al Gore in 2000, and was roundly reviled for essentially robbing Gore of needed votes and tipping the scales in favor of Bush. It's possible, I suppose, that we might be having this same conversation had Gore won, but somehow I doubt it. It just might be that we needed to experience the horror of a Bush administration, and the subsequent horror of a so-called "centrist" who protects the status quo, to fully understand how bad the corruption in Washington has become.
