It Appears Likely That Senator Bernard Sanders (I-VT) Will Soon [View all]

announce that he is withdrawing from his candidacy for the Democratic nomination. Even some of his closest staff advisers are telling him that he should do that.

Once he does, this question will become appropriate:

"Which Side Are You On?"

Many, we will discover, cannot really answer that question. Many will not decide, and will show their contempt for the society in which they live by skipping voting entirely. Many have already done that, which is one of the reasons that Senator Sanders fared poorly after the results from South Carolina became known.

Many of them did not bother to vote in their state's primary elections that took place after Super Tuesday. The same group will not vote in November, most likely. They are people so full of ennui and disaffection that they cannot make a simple decision about who should be in charge of a nation for which they have contempt or disinterest.

So, it will be up to those of us who can answer the question above to carry on and make the choice to help determine the course of the next four years. Many cannot be bothered to do so, as long as their erstwhile champion is no longer available.

There is little point in attempting to pry such people out of their haze of disaffection. They will not participate, but will think their non-participation is actually some sort of action.

More, my friends, is the pity.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
