How are you "throwing your vote away" by voting for the candidate you want? If nothing else, it will contribute to showing that party that people in your area care. It helps them know where they should campaign and work harder in the future.

I understand the predicament, but that's kind of not what voting is supposed to be. If you don't agree with Obama or McCain, then don't vote for them. If everyone just votes for who he supports, and the guy you hate still wins, then I'm sorry but that can only be because he reflects the spirit of the majority.

I know it's idealistic and that most people cannot understand voting this way. My point is that doing it any other way makes voting NOT WORK.

I can't tell you what to do. I, personally, do not vote because I have never seen a candidate I could feel comfortable supporting.
