A primary candidate's ability, as perceived by a political party's ideological base, of having the best chance of later winning in the general election.
Many Democratic primary voters voted for John Kerry in 2004 because they believed he was the only candidate with enough electability to be able to beat Republican George W. Bush in the Presidental Election.

The worst system of choosing among candidates for public office -- except for all the others.
"The turnout for the election wasn't even 40% of eligible voters. The winner got a slight majority of that, so four out of five people DIDN'T vote for him. So from that he concludes he has a popular 'mandate'?!"

A system where two people that represent the rich minority compete to see who can trick more people that they are actually going to do something in their interests.
Why the fuck vote? We all know whoever wins is going to be a Republican/Democrat and they're both going to tell us that they represent the working man while fucking everyone but the rich.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
