19. Kerry conceded while people were still standing in line to vote in some places

I'd spent the entire day walking door to door in Minneapolis (and it was COLD, with snow on the ground) from 10AM to 8PM, with only a stop at campaign headquarters for a hot dog and a soft drink, and I was sitting in my living room, my feet still throbbing, when he conceded.

It seemed as if he didn't want the job as much as the rank-and-file Dems wanted to him to have it.

Furthermore, there was always something odd to me about Kerry winning the Iowa caucuses. I door-knocked in Iowa for Kucinich, and while I was not surprised that Kucinich came in fifth (that was what he predicted), I met NO ONE who supported Kerry. Edwards, yes. Gephardt, yes. Dean, yes. Even a few Kucinich supporters. But NO Kerry supporters. NO Kerry yard signs. Only for Edwards, Gephardt, and Dean.
