77. Yes. Joined DU after the 04 election
and he was bashed non-stop over the concession, etc. And still gets bashed even though he isn't running this time. Although I wasn't here during the primiaries, I think Obama is getting bashed early on and we haven't made it to the DNC Convention yet. Sheesh.
