The curmudgeon demographic

One of my friends told me that, even though we both prefer Obama, if Hillary gets the nomination, I should immediately start talking as though I think she's the best candidate ever. This makes my stomach hurt.

Historically, if young people support a candidate who loses the primary, the young people don't vote rather than supporting the party's choice.

It's at least possible that young people want some emotional continuity rather than party loyalists suddenly dumping their previous opinions.

If Hillary gets the nomination, I intend to go for a McCain's-much-worse campaign.
