RE: Yes, said he thought he was sending the wrong message.

It is good that the Doctor is not endorsing Bombney, but that is not a major part of the issue here. What is driving people off in droves is the strange early concessions by Wead and Benton, and then in paragraph 7 of an email from Ron (rather than a dignified concession speech at the end by the candidate himself); and the request that the grassroots base, who have conducted themselves in the most exemplary way and have been physically and verbally abused and slandered, even having their bones broken, at the state conventions, be courteous! As if they were the perpetrators, rather than the victims, of the disorders that have occurred. Even more important are the suspicions about venality among the campaign professionals expressed so well by Penny Freeman. All this needs to be addressed, and it is suicidal to fail to do so. Among my many RP supporter friends, I am the only one holding on, but a pompous request to "have faith" is a pretty thin handle to hold to.
