Sometimes I want to ask hardcore, all-in supporters of any given candidate: What's your backup plan? If your chosen candidate didn't wake up tomorrow, who would you support? If you don't have a second choice, you don't have a sustainable movement. “No One Else” = “No One.” 1/
This isn't a swipe at anyone specific. I have a current favorite, but I can name at least 3 candidates I could affirmatively vote for in the Democratic primary without feeling I'd betrayed my values. I can't imagine *not* having a second or third choice in a contested primary. /2
