"A lot of my friends are saying ... you have to vote for one of them, but I'm not so sure I do"

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said he will be voting for a third-party candidate over the Republican and Democratic nominees for president…

“A vote is taking our sacred suffrage, our chunk of sovereignty, and bestowing it on someone because he or she is worthy, and I’m having trouble getting to that point with either of the major candidates.”

He continued: “I get it. Somebody is going to win, but you know, no matter who it is, for these two, I’m hoping they don’t think they’re sweeping into office with some powerful mandate. And for people like me that decide to vote for some other choice, might deny them that sense of mandate, which would make, I think, things ever worse.”
