4. Kerry was just that in the previous election, whatever you think.
Edited on Sat Feb-11-06 02:39 PM by Mass
I would worry about McCain, particularly if Democrats continue to push him (Note to Biden, Obama, Feingold).

Gore, Clark, or Feingold would be good as well.

And you cant dismiss the media. Sadly, they will play where they want: they played Dean up for months before they decided to play him down. for example. They would have done the same thing to Edwards if he had been the nominee.
