Anyway, I would be going nuts if my candidate was Kerry.
Do I really need to remind you of Bob Dole in 1996?
That was... very painful. All year I knew we would get our ass kicked and thered be nothing we could do about it, sometimes I put on the brave face and made myself believe we could win, but we had one horrible loser of a candidate. I could barely bring myself to vote and watch the returns that day. It was so bad our freaking congressional candidates ran a commercial telling the people not to write Clinton a blank check, essentially saying "we know your going to re-elect clinton, but you dont want to give him congress, do ya?"
Everybody out there, think about 1996 a while.... and then feel some sympathy for pool ol jaz. He's going through a hard time right now, and we've all been there 2 cycles ago.
