I don’t see anyone to vote for among the nominees for President this year (even among the minor parties). Of course, being in Maryland, my vote doesn’t really count. The state is so heavily Democrat that if the election were close enough for my vote against Hillary to matter, the national election will be a 48- or 49-state blowout. In that case, Maryland’s electoral votes wouldn’t matter, so pushing the state one way or the other won’t really swing the election.
Those of you living in the swing states will have to do the choosing this year. One of the likely differences between the candidates is how they will handle Supreme Court appointments. Reason has collected a series of comments worth reading. FWIW, I tend to agree with Glenn Reynolds’ analysis.
The future of the Supreme Court under Hillary is clearly dreadful: appointees would be to the left of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and probably corrupt to boot. Under Trump it’s unclear: His list of potential appointees actually looked pretty good, but with Trump you never know what he’ll actually do. So I’d say it’s a choice between certainly awful, and possibly awful.
