In the elections coming up everywhere, most people would be choosing lesser of the evils, rather than choosing best of the cream.
"Lesser of the evils" actually involves the process of elimination. Try this method and see if it works.
1. Select the one thing that matters the most to you in this election.
2. Then ask the question, "Which candidate(s) can NEVER satisfy this criteria?".
3. Eliminate those candidates.
Repeat 1 to 3 for the next important thing that matters to you. Continue till you end up with just one candidate.
Take only one criteria at a time. You should eliminate a candidate only if you are sure that he/she cannot satisfy your criteria. If you are not sure, don't eliminate them, take them to the next round.
The criteria and the decision whether to eliminate or not will differ from person to person. But, it will give you a candidate who you can tolerate! Try it!
