  •  Thanks, Vetwife, for an amazing diary down (5+ / 0-)

    a road not taken but well imagined. I only wish that election had not been stolen and that all the horrors of the Bush years, the wars especially, had never happened.

    What a crying shame.

    As you can see, my appreciation of Al Gore was strong even by 2005 when I joined dkos. His courage in speaking out strongly, as you mentioned, about Iraq moved me greatly. How we long for that kind of integrity throughout our federal government and our state governments.

      and until we really think about that loss will we come to grips of what evil we are dealing with,  When that mob hired hit that Miami Dade election office...wasn't that a preview of The Tea Party ?   Really....a mob intimidating vote counters who I happen to know can and always did allow recounts.   They bullied those people trying to do their jobs.   They should have flashed COMING ATTRACTIONS right on the screen like before the election with Rats... for democrats.  Remember that?
