99. This is perhaps the most inane comment I've ever read on DU.
Please. If you're trying to make the case for Gore, you simply could not have chosen a more ridiculous defense.

Gore was a virtual INCUMBENT and couldn't defeat a bungling loser. He was handed the nomination by a president with a 60%+ approval, and still dropped the ball...against a candidate that was substantially less impressive, polished, and qualified than he was in 2004 (not that he was any great shakes then, either). For chrissakes, his campaign was focussed on distancing himself from a popular, effective president. Is that not one of the stupidest strategies imaginable?

In all seriousness, Gore's defeat (or tie) in 2000, from the position he was in, is far more embarrassing than Kerry's loss to an incumbent during a war.
