    but he was an abysmal presidential candidate.   It was infuriating that he lost to Bush I.

      he did get a lot of bad advice from DC Dem insiders.  Its encouraging to hear him state that he regrets it and wished he'd responded to the attacks.

      I was surprised at how many of Dukakis former advisors from the 88 campaign were still working on Gore's 2000 campaign, though.  IIRC, there were a few still working on the Kerry campaign in 2004.
