You just dont get it

Gore didnt want to win and neither does Kerry. They are banking on a TOTAL screw up by Saint Bush and 24 years of Dem dominance following!

Well, that's different...

The desire of Gore and Kerry was not to win? I'll give you one thing, that's a different analysis than the norm.
Problem with the 24 years of dominance senario is that although Carter followed Nixon, Reagan followed Carter.

The operative word here is, "screwup". Carter did it big time, made Democrats almost wish Nixon was still there.

Interesting take ...

In reply to: You just dont get it

... doubtful it could be supported re: Gore, but it is plausible that while Kerry himself desperately wants to be President, many in his party do not want him to win. How else to explain such an utterly pathetic slate of possible candidates let alone the ultimate choice to run against a President the Democrats supposedly believe to be so bad at everything he has done?

Unless the Dems are a bunch of political Morons is there any other explanation for the nomination of Kerry?

The man is a loser and even someone like me who thinks Bush is dangerous and has chosen to surround himself with people like Cheney who would like to rewrite the Constition to suit their own purposes has problems with voting for Mr. Kerry as an alternative.

By continuing to publicly pretend they think Kerry-Edwards is a good ticket, then even if they aren't a buncy of political morons, they sure are risking being perceived as such anyway.

The truth is that Democratic party has been lurched solidly left. If they don't appease those radicals on the left they can't win. But it is becoming evermore clear that if they do appease them, they alienate the center of America which is more to the right than they are willing to admit to themselves.

Not true, Gearup. While the screwup is certain, all that might remain is picking up the pieces of what was once the greatest nation on earth.

WHAT ARE YOU SAYING

...is picking up the pieces of what WAS ONCE the greatest nation on earth.

you don't seem to have a clue here. In your humble opinion just what nation is the greatest nation on earth?

Hmm let me see
1. Freedom for all
2. Best economy
3. Best scenery
4. Best technology
5. Most compassionate
6. Most powerful, has done the most good w/that power and the least bad(evil)
7. Most opportunities
8. Best medical
9. Best education
10. Oh, did I mention the FREEDOM thing.

Just what country is this? 5 seconds to answer it's not that hard.

My Senator's blinding flash of the obvious!

In reply to: Democrats concerned with the race...........

Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana said Mr. Kerry had spent too much time talking about national security, including his own views on the Iraq war, and overplayed Mr. Kerry's Vietnam war experience, inviting the attacks that have dominated debate in recent weeks.

The focus on security was calculated to erase Mr. Bush's advantage on the issue. But Democratic leaders said the Kerry campaign had become ensnared in a debate that played to Mr. Bush's strength, and diverted him from challenging Mr. Bush on his domestic record.

"He needs to define this election," Mr. Bayh said of Mr. Kerry. "So much of the convention was focused on national security - if that's where the election is, I don't think he can win."


The real question that Sen. Bayh - or any Democrat for that matter - doesn't want people to ask is, "Besides his 4 months and 12 days in Vietnam some 35 years ago, what else has John Kerry done?" The short answer, of course, is "Nothing."

In 20 years in the Senate, he's never sponsored or cosponsored any major legislation (without regard to that legislation's desirability). He's never had any substantive leadership position in the Senate - even when the Democrats were in control of that body. And when he was given a true plum position that he could have used as a career enhancer - his seat on the Senate Intelligence Committee - he couldn't even be bothered with attending its meetings and hearings.

Frankly, the man's an empty suit, and his fellow Democrats shouldn't be amazed that his campaign is weak, wandering and aimlessly flailing about; Mr. Kerry displays all those traits in his personal character in abundance, along with this alarming tendency to stretch the truth well past the breaking point. The impression that the electorate's increasingly forming is that of a spoiled, impetuous and untrustworthy child; IOW, exactly what America does NOT need in the Oval Office at this crucial time in her history.

Can you say, "unpresidential"? How about, "buyer's remorse"?
