    In this case it's probably a good idea.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    That's the best option of all... A lot of European countries are seeing their 3rd parties gain more power. I wish American could manage more than two parties.

    I expect that we will still see some Democratic presidential nominees who will run only to get their name out by the media for when they run in 2016.

    I'm actually very interested to see which other Democrats will throw their hat in the ring.
    I can't imagine who those dems would be though... I kind of Hillary runs again.

    I've been reading into this "Americans Elect" movement a bit, it's interesting. Wonder if anyone else has anything interesting to say about this?

    That is absolutely amazing. I have rarely been more on board with a political movement before. If this system becomes a reality in the political voting population, this could destroy both the Republicans and the Democrats. And I sincerely hope it does- that destruction would be decades overdue.
