7. Dems are all too often wimps
I have to agree that Democrats didn't make much of a case in court, which (unfortunately) is all too often the situation. Even David Boies did a lousy job in Bush v. Gore -- he should have maintained that the Bush position regarding recounts (based on the equal protection clause), if upheld, would have led to a mandatory re-election in just about every state in the country (because most states have more than one method of voting, thereby denying equal protection), but he didn't.
