An Alternative Focus for Clinton Supporters Choosing not to Vote on Nov. 4

Democrats have seemed a little on edge since John McCain’s stunning announcement this Friday morning of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. The up tick in the Left’s anxiety is understandable. Obama blew his chance to run with Hillary Clinton, an extraordinarily well-qualified woman with an indefatiguable spirit; now John McCain has seized the moment by picking the young assertive reformer Palin.

Naturally, left-wingers have increased their urgent demands – typically laced with guilt and fear-mongering - for Hillary Clinton supporters to get on board with Obama and Biden. As others have pointed out, it’s a little like the abusive spouse asking, “Where you gonna go, Babe?”

Long-time devoted Democrat, Heidi Li Feldman, has published a thoughtful response to why she’s choosing to abstain from voting on Nov. 4. The Georgetown University law professor offers her fellow Clinton supporters an alternative focus for their time and energy in the coming months, regardless of who wins the presidency.
