    I do agree with both sides of the fence here. We ran a decent campaign in many ways AND yet there were things that could have been improved. Let's isolate problems now, not so anyone can be blamed - but so we can kick their ass in the next election.  

    When you're fighting someone as dirty as the current Republican Machine, you have one of two options: be just as dirty, or work a lot smarter. I'll take the latter option every time.

    I would say, the appeals for money did get a little tiresome. Particularly because I was starving for real inside news or positions on the issues, and felt it never came via the emails. Someone said upstream that it'd be OK to tag a call for money at the end, as long as there's some inspirational/informational message beforehand, that's right on target.

    I would have loved to learn more about Kerry's thoughts on the issues, something written by him personally, even just a few lines each email.

    Also, I thought it was a shame they didn't tout things in the emails like Kerry's endorsement by the Humane Society and his flawless voting record for animal rights.
