Bush won. Kerry lost. That's a fact.<br><br>Dems, Repubs, red states, blue states, IQs, demographics, moral issues, political agendas, election manipulation, voter irregularities, and blah blah blah... That's all opinion, speculation, accusation, and statistics of convenience.<br><br>I'm personally disappointed in the outcome, but at the end of the day, as bad as many may feel Bush is, the other guy clearly didn't have what it takes to win. Period. That's about as black and white as it gets. So instead of kvetching and looking for ways to placate oneself with reasons why Bush really didn't win, why not think about how to get the right candidate elected 4 years from now.<br><br>I mean, the deal is done. It's time to make the best of what we've got — make lemonade, so to speak — and focus positively on the road ahead. Is that so much to ask?<br><br>And as for the little victory dances we've seen during the last few days — let these folks celebrate. After the relentless and condescending ass-kicking they've endured all year for simply supporting their candidate, they deserve a day in the sun.<br><br>*rant over*<br><br>

I agree. And anyone who thinks the Democratic party is all but dead just remember, after the ass-whooping the Rupublican party endured in 1964 (and it was much more brutal than the Dems got this time), they reclaimed the White House 4 years later and kept it for 20 out of the next 24 years.<br><br>
no. we'll have a message that gets repeated over and over to the masses that will resonate and work. "dubya sux" just didn't cut it. <br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato

I don't see a happy future for the Dems in 08 because I think Hillary is making power moves to be the next choice. <br>If that happens, the Rep canidate can start picking out wallpaper for the Whitehouse bedroom. <br>It's not an overstatement to say the woman is a socialist of the worst kind.<br>She could never stand up agains someone like Powell<br><br>
