  •  They were both crappy candidates. (0+ / 0-)

    Kerry at least had the benefit of appealing to the Democratic core.

    Mitt doesn't appeal to much of anybody.  His biggest selling point is being "not the Obama".

    Who knows?  Maybe Kerry could have been a decent candidate in another election under different circumstances, but...
    I don't remember seeing him on the ticket in 2000 or 1992, so maybe not.

      worked very hard at supporting yours beyond calling kerry a crappy candidate. maybe we should just get back to work trying to beat mitt.

      •  Let's put it this way: He lost to George W. Bush (0+ / 0-)

        at a time when the Iraq war wasn't popular, the deficit was climbing through the roof, and the economy wasn't exactly gangbusters.
