I don't really think about it in sides taken.
Unfortunately, it is ultimately about sides taken.
It's about attempting to return to something approaching normalcy in our Federal government or 4 more years of idiocy.
You either choose to re-elect Trump, or you choose "NOT TRUMP," and then try to patch it up from there. I disagree very strongly with Sanders and Warren, and don't see a "can't lose" pairing for a Potus/Veep from the weak Democratic field either.
That said, whoever the Dem nominee is, I will vote for him or her. Or her or him. I will do actual work to help them get elected. I will give whatever funds I can afford to assist the Democratic nominee in what is the most important election in any of our lifetimes.

This is what all Americans, no matter what their party, who care about decency and our democracy will do. We'll see if it's enough.
Sanders and Stacy Abrams. You heard it here first.
