Slate: Who We Voted For

    Curious to hear what you all think of Slate's policy of having its employees disclose who they're voting for. I always say the more disclosure the better--so I have more data points to judge your "objectivity"--but I know many differ. Does it matter Slate is not a straight-up news site?

    I like it. Not saying it should be mandatory or anything, but I like transparency better than fake objectivity.

    I loved this one:

    Hell, Charles Pierce wrote about how he chose Obama over Stein. This guy picked Stein over the nominee of the Party for Socialism and Liberation?

    That's awesome.

    I bet he's fun to hang out with.

    If you want to disclose who you voted for, fine. That's a lot better than an assinine policy of a place I worked many years ago that tried to prohibit workers from putting stickers on their car or signs in their yards.

    But if you want it to remain private, that's certainly your right, too.
