Sorry, but that's the way it works out.
Could not of said it better myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!

Aside from a minor quibble about Clinton winning with 49% of the vote in 1996, not 43%, you don't have to look farther than the 2000 election for an example of a third-party candidate (Nader and the Green Party) spoiling things for the Democrats.

I think that by voting on principle, you not only remain true to your beliefs, but you may send a message which influences both parties' positions. By supporting third-party candidates, you end up with a greater representation of political beliefs. Currently, there's probably more similarities than differences between Dems and Repubs.
