Positively 4th Street
While hanging back in STL, I went to see the Bob Dylan movie, “I’m Not There” for the second time in as many weeks. hile sitting in The Tivoli theater and watching the movie, I was struck by a line from Dylan’s famous song, “Positively 4th Street”:
“You just want to be on the side that’s winning…”
This was so interesting because of the current campaign fervor. Who’ll win? With all the biting and scratching as the candidates try to claw their way to the top of the heap, I get amused when people use the word “unelectable.”
A friend recently said he really likes Mike Huckabee, but won’t vote for him because he doesn’t have a chance of winning.
To this I say…so, do you just want to be on the side that’s winning?
The whole idea of only supporting someone who may win is ridiculous. I would much rather support the candidate who most reflects my views-even if he/she does NOT have a snowball’s chance in Phoenix.
Winning can really only be explored when people stick to their guns. Fairweather fans and voters need to really take a long, hard look at what they believe and make their decision on those pieces of info-not on who can make the voter a winner.
