61. You know why!
They don't like anyone.

At this point, there are a handful of viable dem candidates, and they all have their strengths and weaknesses, both as Democrats and candidates -- unfortunately, the perception is that the better Dems (Feingold) are weaker candidates. I don't know how valid it is, myself.

I think Obama is an imperfect democrat, but an exciting candidate. Dean was a much better democrat, and exciting, but we know how that all turned out. I adore Gore and think he'd probably make the best president. But I worry that he's perceived as a loser. It would break my heart if he "lost" again.

Frankly, the best we can hope for is an honest, open, and fair primary season. After that, I'll accept WHOEVER wins.
