    Dukakis is the only time in my adult life Dems blew a summer lead.

    Kerry was in a tossup, never had a real lead, it was all margin-of-error in national polling and the battleground state polls all revealed a tough path to 270.  I disregarded it then, and learned my lesson:  the map is what matters.n hin

    Carter "blew" a summer lead, but in hindsight the conditions then were a disaster for him, nothing affecting any Democrat since then.

    Clinton in '92 trailed most of the year and took the lead only at and after the convention.

    They're really isn't a Dukakis example besides Dukakis himself.
