55. I do.
Dean's voters mostly voted. Some of them were even active in the Kerry campaign. When Dean dropped out of the primaries, however, he stopped recruiting new Democrats (yes, I know about DFA, but it never came close to the enthusiasm that Dean did as a candidate). Since we know that nearly 40% of Americans didn't vote and we know that we only lost this by about 3%, new voters were the key to winning. Dean had a much greater ability to motivate new voters than Kerry. In addition, Dean's campaign would have had more enthusiasm (my opinion).

I'm right where I was a year and a half ago. Dean was the man for the job and I believe he would have won.
