      Overall, 2004 was an exceptionally depressing year to be a Democrat from my point of view. Everybody running away from Kerry, Kerry repeatedly getting punched on all sides and seemingly very little response from him or the campaign.

      His performance in the first debate helped turn things around immensely but in the end, it was not enough. Only good things come out of 04 were the elections of Obama and Ken Salazar (not so much for Salazar's record in the Senate which was very centrist but more for showing the path to victory in the MTN west).
