Its hard for me to agree with this reasoning. Would you call her wasteful if she had quit her riding in order to retire from politics? I don't think so --- we would consider that the cost of having a democratic system where anyone (even people who might have reasons to leave office) can represent us if they find electoral support. How then is it wasteful for her to quit and then run in an election where there was clearly a lot of support for her platform? She finished with 23% of the popular vote after entering the race as the front-runner. She clearly added something important to the public discourse, regardless of whether or not she managed to turn that into a victory.
