If You Are Not Among the 73 Undecided Voters

For whom tonight's Throwdown in Hempstead-Town! has been calibrated, enjoy this clip from Gore Vidal's "The Best Man" featuring Henry Fonda as the brilliant, cautious, principled "William Russell" trying to cope with Cliff Robertson's utterly confident, utterly unscrupulous "Joe Cantwell" in a down-to-the-wire battle to decide who will be the next President of the United States.

Russell:  You're worse than a liar.  You have no sense of right or wrong, only what'll work.  Well this (shaking an incriminating document of very dubious origin) is going to work. 
Cantwell:  You're not going to use that now. 
Russell:  Oh yes.  Yes.  I'd use anything against you.  I can't let you be President.
