  •  "Electability" (none)
    Some here have commented on the pros and cons of Feingold's electability; that's a sword we lived and died by in 2004 and by god I hope we don't see any of that nonsense again.  Sure, Dems viewed Kerry as the most "electable" during primary season.  But come the general election, it was irrelevant - what mattered was, who was the best guy to be President?  And Kerry surely didn't articulate how he fit that bill.

    As Kucinich once said, in response to the "electability" question:  "Well, I'm electable if you vote for me."  So let's get the best guy (or gal) out there and forget about who, for example, will best appeal to Southerners on God, guns and gays.

    •  Electability... (none)
      is highly overrated. "Electable" Kerry lost.

      The biggest winners for Democrats have been darkhorses.
