Well, you really hit on two of my major points. First, it's not an easy decision. Give us a nominee who is, as your proffer, "a more centrist candidate who can win, and at least stop the slide of America" and you'll have little problem with the left. However, if the candidate is one who will simply slow the slide of America, then some voters may opt for the revolver with five bullets.

Secondly was your use of the word "optimistic." That's really the key, in my opinion. If the dems launch a candidate who carries a message of optimism; one who really does offer the possibility that things can get better and not simply won't get as bad, then bingo! we have our next president. Afterall, Bush's message is one of fear and violence. American's have little patience for such a dire view.
