How come its always the candidate that didn't run or didn't get the nomination

that was the one that would have won?

At least that seems to be a widely held view around here. If Clark had run, he'd have won. If Gore would run he would win. And so on and so forth.

While I think Gore has a shot a winning if he runs, I think the same is true about most of the Democrats in the race now.

But in the end, if someone can't get or doesn't want the nomination, it seems pretty silly (and awfully easy) to say "if only he/she was the nominee, then we'd have won".

You gotta play if you want to win. And you have to win the nomination before you can win the general.
