15. Most of their advice in 2004
which they loudly despensed when Kerry didn't let them run his campaign was not all that good. (They argued that he needed to speak on the economy and not national security and Iraq - though Kerry's numbers improved when he spoke of the security issues.)

In Clinton they had a very charismatic candidate. They had a President who was in the low 30s in the spring of 1992 and at 29 in August. There was a time when Perot and Bush polled above Clinton. Only after Perot self-destructed and pulled out did Clinton become the highest. When Perot came back in he never had numbers as high as he did before he left. 1992 was a year when any Democrat might have won - though when decisions had to be made on running in mid to late 1991, Bush had looked unbeatable. This would be closer to beating Bush, now after he's dropped 10 to 15 points since Nov 2004 - and Kerry lost by 60,000 votes in Ohio. Notice Bush 2 is still higher than his dad.)

The Clinton team, even with a Clinton political clone (who had never been President), might have done worse than Cahill did.
