Kerry made an awful stupid mistake, but in my opinion, it was just a mistake.
Is it coming at a good time? Maybe. Maybe not.
Keep in mind that many, many people were surprised and upset over the last elections.
Sore losers? You bet.
Just a bunch of losers? I don't know.
Our system is "Checks and Balances." Most notably the two-party system.
George W. Bush has been in for two terms, and there has to be a change. Not negotiable.
Kerry is still the Dems most viable candidate. So they already have a basis on which to build. That alone puts them one step ahead. One step may be enough.
Can we provide a candidate with enough charisma, knowledge and experience to guarantee the presidency? One strong enough to beat Kerry?
I wish we did.
