    The best president in this country's history was a "lousy" candidate, not particularly popular in his own state, and shocked everyone when he won the presidency.

    Gore would be a huge mistake. People may not revile him, the way the do Hillary, but the don't like him. The Dems should purge themselves of all their recycled warts and come up with someone dynamic. Gore has a poll-driven vision for the country. What the Dems need is someone with the balls to say this is *MY* vision and stick to it. It's what worked about Bush. It's also what worked about Howard Dean before he went batshit. A slick politician in the mold of the Clintons or Gores is exactly how the Dems can blow this.

    Barack Obama -- in about 10 years.
  11. Well, Clinton was slick but people liked him. They knew he was catering his policies largely to the polls, but they didn't mind because they thought he was smart, charismatic and generally they liked the policies. But eight years of that made people ready for someone like Bush who seemed stubborn and steadfast in his beliefs.

    The Dems won't be better off with someone like that if that person is too hard left. People will accept that with congressmen and occassionally senators. But especially these days when they vote for President they want someone strong,.e. the daddy candidate, and that's why Republicans who win the Presidency are generally conservative and Democrats are moderate.

    if I'm a Democrat concerned about electability, my order right now is: 1) Warner, 2) Edwards, 3) Bayh, 4) Gore, 5) Hillary.

    If Obama runs, he could vault into the top three, depending on how he performs as a national candidate.
