Taking the Pledge Part 3
Just so people are clear on this: the purpose of The Pledge is not to inhibit people from criticizing the other guy's candidate. It is just a way of reminding us not to immediately jump on any negative information we hear about the other guys nor presume that supporters of opposing candidates are somehow deficient because they aren't supporting our guy. We need to block any attempt by provocateurs to get supporters of the various candidates fighting against each other. I think The Pledge can help. It's my way of reminding myself, personally, that Clark is not Dean's enemy.
