12. Overall, his influence on the election was minor, and that grievance
is sour grapes.

We still would have won if;

1. Gore had campaigned harder, and pulled in any possible favors with people with media ties to influence editors to get the blatantly fixed media hostility either squashed or equalized.

2. Gore had accepted Bill Clinton's help campaigning.

3. Our party had fought like hell in Florida and never given up the fight to count every vote.

Blaming Nader is a continuation of the ongoing trend to constantly bash anything and everything that comes from the left as the bane of everything Democratic.

The Democratic party can never seem to take responsibility for anything, and certainly not for it's own actions and decisions. Isn't it about time now for our party to start to start acting like it is run by adults and start admitting some responsibility?
