  •  Kerry was simply the wrong candidate... (3.75)
    I've been pouring over the election results in my mind all morning and have come to the conclusion that Kerry should have never been the Dem candidate (I remain fond of Dean).  Considering Dubya's train wreck of a record and the money and resources "our side" dumped into this race, this should have been a cake walk.

    My other thought (though I just saw CNN's "breaking news" announcing Kerry's concession call to Dubya) is that Kerry has nothing to lose by letting Ohio sit in limbo for weeks while absentee and provisional ballots are counted, and even forcing an entire recount.  Even if he has lost, it is more important that the count be done correctly rathen than quickly.  We should have no Gore-like "concession for the good of the country" bullshit this time.

    •  senators don't win presidential elections (none)
      Especially Massachusetts "liberals".  

      Kerry was a terrible choice.  It's amazing he did as well as he did.

    •  it was not Kerry's fault (3.00)
      No living democrat besides Bill Clinton would have defeated bush. The religious right is a serious force and I think we on the left did not think they would turn out in these numbers. Please let's not blame Kerry everyone thought he was going to win based on the exits lets give him some support today.
      •  Bullshit (2.50)
        KErry fucked up

        There were MILLIONS of people marching in the streets against his opponent and he went fucking windsurfing.

        ABB my ass you still need a candidate that connects to the base...he refused.
