We all play politics the best way to suit our individual beliefs.
The recent race between McDaniel and Cochran is a perfect example of how "We the People" play our own political game.
In a primary it is just a matter of choosing the lesser of two evils and then voting for your candidate of choice. Many independents, Democrats and others will vote across party lines in primaries where permitted for the candidate they can live with or one who is sure to lose in the general election if they favor another candidate.
The recent Republican Primary is a perfect example of an extremist challenging a moderate contender. This allows moderates and opposing party voters to mutually create a winning situation for their own cause in November.
Sometimes it pays to unite.
