Default Re: Science Saturday: Stupid Primates

I'm listening to this in the car and I'm not done, but I do have a couple of thoughts about what this tells us about the Democratic voters who are saying they will vote for McCain if the opposite D candidate wins.

First, even if you started out thinking that Clinton and Obama are roughly equivalent, once you choose one you're likely to overvalue the differences between them. Second, once you've been told you don't get your choice, but you had to take the opposite of the one you wanted, you wind up disliking the choice you were forced to take.

I don't know if this will make a difference in November, but I really doubt that these survey respondents, since by that time we can expect that these committed Democrats will prefer any Democrat to that POS McCain.

At least, I hope that's the case.
