Re: Super Tuesday

Several other webcomics have seen fit to weigh in on today, so here's my advice to those voting today (I don't get to vote until April):

To Democrats:

Vote for Obama. I know you hate losing and there's no Republican candidate who can beat him. What he lacks in experience he makes up for in a willingness to learn and ask questions. He also lacks a closet full of vicious skeletons that the Republicans can use against him.

If you want a repeat of Kerry vs. Bush in 2004, vote for Hillary. Republicans are more fractured and unhappy than they've ever been, but she'll succeed in uniting them for another 51% win.

To Republicans:

DON'T vote for McCain. Seriously, guys. Remember 1996? Remember how Bob Dole got his head handed to him? Be smarter than that. McCain's idea of "bipartisanship" is to give everyone all the pork they ask for. You don't want a guy like that representing your party. This is doubly true if the Democrats go with Obama.

If you're really smart, you'll vote for Ron Paul, since he's the only Republican running who appears to have a handle on economics, health care, and foreign policy. Bush Sr. lost in 1992 because he couldn't handle economic issues like inflation. The Democrats are going to trumpet the issue of "universal health care," so you'd better have a candidate who knows something about medicine. And it would be a nice strategy not to turn away the 70% of voters (a good chunk of which are Republicans) who oppose the war.

Still, even if you don't want to go for the optimal candidate, at least try to avoid the worst!
