Dear Editor, I am neither an Obamamaniac nor a Hillarite; I never thought either candidate was particularly viable. Liberals who support Ron Paul somehow do not understand that he is a conservative Republican (the country has just gone so far neo-right that he looks left). National elections are no place for idealism statements or personality (or voting for a woman because she is a woman, goddammit – read George Stephanopoulos' book). They are about electing a government. A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for Ralph Nader. When the Republicans say they would prefer her as a candidate, that should tell you something.
