As a Republican, a-la Bush-43? Don't bother unless you believe that the POTUS and leader of the party can wag the dog.
The GOP fooled me once before while my eyes were shuttered by ignorance - shame on me. The GOP fooled me twice, looking, with the 'lesser of two evils' - shame on them. The GOP will not fool me again.
Democracy is the rule of fools by fools, let's not be any greater fools than we must.
