JohnT, what you failed to understand then and fail to understand now is that this thread was not an argument for how you should vote. So framing it all in terms of why this didn't amount to an argument for voting against Clinton was missing the point entirely. Obviously she was a vastly superior candidate on every metric.

This thread was an attempt to identify and defend a norm worth defending against the onslaught of subordinating every goddamn thing to partisan point-scoring. That has, if anything, become an even more important point in the intervening 3 years which you remain on the wrong side of, apparently.
