91. A good campaign would have beaten B*sh by hundreds of thousands.

A good campaign would have beaten B*sh by hundreds of thousands. We're talking Shrubya, the dimwit son of a truly criminal one-term president. Had Gore run anything resembling a populist, progressive, decent campaign, Nader would not have had a leg to stand-on. Even if Nader had still gotten 34,000 votes in FL, that should have been a drop in the bucket compared to Gore's margin.

Plus, Gore lost his home state of TN. Can't blame Nader there. But had Gore's campaign been popular enough to even win his OWN (*&^$$%##** STATE, Florida would not have mattered.

I refuse to believe that the Gore/Loserman campaign of 2000 was the best the Democrats could do. It was DLC-driven, tepid, corporatist crap. If the Dems decide to learn no lessons from 2000 and again run a tepid, widely-disliked, polarizing candidate with a wooden campaign that tilts toward a right wing that will NEVER vote for the candidate in question, then they deserve to lose.

I myself would prefer to learn the lessons of the past, embrace the populism and progressivism that the nation craves today, and elect a viable, liberal, truly Democratic president in 2016. The Democrats can and should do better than Hillary Clinton in 2016.
