In an election year where candidates on both sides are on strike two, the election of the "lesser of two evils" seems inevitable.

As a conservative, my tendency would be to vote for John McCain. But word is McCain could pick the pro-choice ex-governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Ridge. McCain could prove to be the "do anything to get the vote" candidate the Republicans have accused Obama of being.

My loyalty to principles runs much deeper than my loyalty to party. Some say my vote won't matter in Utah. But it will matter to someone: me.
