49. Very well stated Ida!
Our crisis is indeed twofold: The Republicans are corrupt, and the Democrats are ineffectual. I didn't support Dean in the primaries for pragmatic reasons, but he did have a good point.

Why does our leadership seem so naive and weak? Not to brag, but sometimes I wish I and other DUers were working at the DNC or the Kerry campaign, cause I'd like to whup some ass and stick it to these bastards. Especially now.

Welcome to the battle. Thank you for fighting for the recounts, too. Better hurry and get it done before inauguration day though.
