    ulternative if Ralph Nader and his 2% of the voting population supporters?  Majorities win elections.  Ralph is about 48.1% away from gaining the majority.  Thats a long way to go.  It makes more sense to run in the DNC primary and force issues out.  Dean did it.  Kuchinich was heard.  We heard Edwards.

      so I cant really address this. I am very excited about what Dean did for the party, in the party. It gave me hope as an independent lefty voter. I think the DNC let the GOP get away with too much and are only now starting to catch on (cf 2002 mid terms).

      Still the whole Nader flap has totally distracted Dems from the job at hand. I also think that "ABB" is not an air tight strategy.

      •  I agree (none)
        ABB is not the right strategy.  It was for the primaries (ABB in the sense that I like my candidate but I will vote for all), but not now.  You are correct, Kerry needs, and will, be more than ABB.  But right now he can stand back and watch Bush screw up and then deal with the Clarke testimony fallout.  

        I am so very happy that Dean ran in the primary.  He really started this energized movement to take back the WH.  After 2002, and during the campaigns, it was sad.
