30. With no verifiable vote
and many of the mechanics of Florida 2000 covered by the GOP in advance, kerry had no way to scrounge a victory- if he would be allowed the attempt. Gore kept dribbling away real votes in his attempt to get at the recount. But anyway, the main problem that the MSM refuses to focus upon is the unreliability of election results, the horrors of the system, and its own role of course in putting truth behind us as we forge ahead in fraud.

What Kerry could have done- if completely prepared- which most apparently their team was not- was to build a wide case of fraud with criminal evidence and the unreliability of tabulated and recorded votes. Even the former might have netted some individuals almost caught red-handed by amateurs and observers. For whatever reason, Kerry sacrificed votes way in advance of the election and had no strategy to contest anything except a very unwise assumption they could refight 2000 more diligently and politely. To do that they would have to have had a huge lead, not a closing close margin in the polls. His post election warchest was an empty threat by the end. The votes were gone. The fraud was allowed its cloak of invisibility- and still is. The GOP had closed all the 2000 tarbaby traps this time.

The next time, one assumes currently all the Dem contenders pretty much plan to do the same thing as Kerry, it would appear. The GOP seems free to match any other strategic changes with their own and leave their major advantages totally intact. If THAT equation remains unchanged as it did in 2004 almost anyone can manage to lose.
