Why vote Democrat? Because you're still dazed enough to believe that the 2-party system is useful and meaningful, and you're presently fed up with the demo, er republican party...uh, what's the difference, again?
For any major party candidate, regardless of party affiliation:
Job one: get elected (or re-elected)
Job two: pork barrel projects for constituents (thus leading to future electivity) that have no significance to the vast majority of US citizens -- including one's own constituents (other than wasting money)
Job three: see job one.
Job four: Complain that the reason you can't do more for people is the other party.
Job five: see job one.
Job six: hide all the illegal and immoral crap you do from everyone you can. Any and all methods and means are permissible, so long as your focus is on job one.
Job seven: see job one.
Job eight: get jobs for all your friends, cronies, contributors and slack-brained relatives.
Job nine: see job one.
Job ten: distance yourself from anyone or anything for whom surfaces any meaningful evidence of the items in Job six. Any means or method of distancing yourself is permissible, so long as your focus is on job one.
Job eleven: see job one.
Job twelve: support meaningless, moronic legislation so long as (1) the average person can't really understand it and (2) the lobbyists are helping you line your featherbed.
Job thirteen: Hmmm...thirteen is an unlucky number. Well, historically so, anyway. And I'm not saying that it is necessarily and significantly much more so than any other number, but I would have trouble embracing it whole-heartedly without a study of its effects and dis-effects upon my constituents. In fact, I'm going on a fact-finding trip to Hawaii, Fiji and Milan to determine how deep this issue goes.
Job fourteen: see job one.
And on and on indefinitely...
Not that I'm cynical or anything...
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
