Dana Milbank, Republican Voter

Last updated: July 31, 2020 | February 08, 2010 | Rhyley Carney

An interesting revelation from an online reader chat with The Washington Post’s “Washington Sketch” columnist.

My policy in each presidential race is to vote for the best candidate who is not on the ballot… so I voted for McCain in 2000, when Bush and Gore were on the ballot. I voted for Chuck Hagel in 2004, when Bush and Kerry were on the ballot. And I voted for Mike Bloomberg in 2008.

That’s really a pretty representative list of candidates who became darlings of the D.C. media establishment. (For the record, I voted for Ron Paul in the 2008 presidential primary and the Obama-Biden ticket in the general election.)
