40. Exactly...
which was my point. The post I was responding to said 'progressives, left wing, and liberals nominated Kerry'. Progressives (The Democratic Wing of the Democratic Party?) went for Dean, NOT Kerry. It was, as you say, the rank and file Democrats who rammed Kerry in...with the help of the DLC (the GOP wing of the Democratic party) when they realized Dean needed to be taken down.
