    are what made him the "most electable" candidate.

    That Kerry was considered to be the "most electable" is pretty much undisputed... I'm surprised to be finding you arguing otherwise.

      I'm not saying that I think Kerry was the "most electable"... FWIW, I thought at the time, and continue to think, that Dean was... I'm just saying that [Kerry was the "most electable"] was the prevailing narrative at the time.

      :-)

        but the people got punked, by Rove & his band of murderers doing psyched out attack on Kerry, thereby giving the impression that's who they feel is the strongest. It was a pysche war and the thugs won again.

        Edwards back then was the most electable, like today. Notice how the media rarely talks about him. They underplay him deliberately.
