    Is it Kerry? Edwards?
    Edwards did not take his own state which is a bit embaressing I would think.
    His wife? She has said a few unkind words here and there -
    But think of this - she is surrounded by foreign officials and she doesn't like Tony's tie - and since she likes to speak her mind ----

    I am just wondering who the dems will blame. I think Kerry did the best he could - but he could have choosen a much better running mate...

    I think he should have kept his hagged wife busy with some useless project just to stop her from saying things like 'let them go naked' - refering to homeless children in the carib.

    Was there an issue with Kerry that wasn't quite clear in your own minds?

    Terry McAuliffe.

    If I were him, I'd be updating my resume. He lost in 2000, lost seats in Congress in 2002, and lost more seats in congress yesterday, to include his Senate Majority Leader. He also insisted on a quick primary in which a guy with one good month ended up winning the nomination because he was "electable." That guy also happened to be more liberal than Ted Kennedy and more lifeless than Al Gore, and is now the Loser from Massachusetts.

    Terry gets the blame, and hopefully will get the boot.

    Actually, what am I saying? I hope he sticks around for at least four more years! :D

    The Democrats basically put a Dole up against a Clinton: a long-serving senator with a war record who basically bored the tar out of everyone because he had no fire in the belly and was running because, hey, he's a long-serving senator with a war record. I wonder what would have happened in the Democrats had gone for Dean. That guy actually sounded like he wanted to be president.

    Hillary was nice enough to take out Dean for Kerry. No blame to put anywhere because it came out just the way she wanted it. How much did SHE get out and campaign for Kerry?

    True. Last night I was surprised that Begala and Carville called it VERY early for Bush and then disappeared. Carville actually said, we need another Clinton. I wonder which one he was referring to.....

    I also noted Terry's absence from the talk shows last night. The entire Clinton team abandoned Kerry quite early.

    After reading that and watching Kerry's concession speach I feel sorry for the man. I think he honestly wants to help, but his ideas are horrible. He was just a tool of the Clintonistas. They came looking like they wanted to help, steered him into the ground and got the hell outta dodge just before the wreck. I am fairly confident of Hillary '08.

    And Jesus there are 2 people I would LOVE to hear from:

    Terry McAuliffe, the smug bastard from the debates. What's he doin now?
    Micheal Moore. Fahrenheit 9/11 did jack shit. I actually saw a survey that the movie caused more people to change their votes from Kerry to Bush than from Bush to Kerry.

    McCauliffe will be around for a while. He was put in place by the Clintons and they'll want him there for Hitlery's run in 08. (That's my gut feel anyhow.)
