    Would we be better off if John Kerry had won in 2004? consider this: Barack Obama would NOT be president right now.

    No, I don't think so, not if it meant John Kerry was going to be President for four to eight years, but we might have been better off if Al Gore had won in 2000. Just think he probably never would have gone so "green" and batty if he'd of won.

    But I shudder to think where we'd be if John Kerry had been President.

    A leftist is a leftist is a leftist, so no. Starting down this road four years earlier wouldn't have been better. What would have been better is if the Republicans had run an actual conservative. Consider this: Barack Obama would NOT be President right now.

    I never said anything about any specific person who should have been run. It's certainly not as though there aren't any real conservatives in America. They could have found one.

    Indeed no. Things would have just gone south that much sooner.

    Conservative in the american sense of the word would be one who favored smaller government. Please tell me how reatarded you have to be to think that Geore W. Bush or his daddy were in favor of smaller government?
