    •  yes I remember, and I also remember (none)
      there were always a few Kerry supporters around, even before Ohio. If I could figure out how to search better (when did we switch to Scoop? Can one search Kos legacy?), I'd look up some of the threads I remember re: Kerry as veteran/war hero being exactly what we needed.

      But, certainly it was after Ohio that more Kerry supporters found their way here -- or found their voices? Maybe they were always here, but mostly silent, given the strong pro-Dean slant of our gracious host.

      Everybody likes to have supported "the winner," right? I know I went to town Friday, and I swear I saw more "Bush/Cheney" bumper stickers (accompanied by yellow ribbons) in that one day than I'd seen in our town during the whole campaign....  (Dems outnumber Repubs here about 2-1).

        damn....
      •  Kos Legacy (none)
        the Legacy site seems to have gone missing - it was at dailykos.org

        But here's a nugget of DKos social legacy relating to Kerry - anyone else remember Ali Karim Bey, and his incessant posts insisting Kerry would be the nominee?  AKB disappeared shortly after the switch to Scoop.  He was a major irritant to many.

        This was back in early-mid 2003, back when Tacitus was still on the blogroll and would occasionally drop in with his ignorant, verbose, condescending comments.  Fancied himself a minor league Buckley, he did.
