That he lost does not mean he was not the best choice. Whic candidate did you prefer?
- all of the other candidates seemed far weaker - and none got the brunt of the Republican slime machine
- Many of the Democratic partisans were open that Kerry was not their choice. Begala and Carville were useless on their shows, never really defending or explaining Kerry, only making snarky comments about Bush. This would not have been important if the commentators were balanced overall - but they were among the few Democrats
- The local parties are in shambles - a decent Ohio local party might have helped thwart Blackwell - and Kerry would have won.
-Kerry's rallies were very exciting and passionate and did move people - but were not given the normal press.
-Kerry's positions were well articulated in the debates, the rallies, when he was interviewed and on his web site.
