Could the democrats screw this up anymore There's absolutely no way Kerry will beat Bush in the general election. In fact its going to be a complete landslide and this sucks. As much as I like Dean as a person, he also has the usual trappings that prevent him from having a chance. There really is only one person who could win and thats Clark. He has the foreign policy experience, is a rhodes scholar and most of all is from the south. I know in an ideal world this wouldn't matter, but face the facts. Gore won the Democratic states by very small margins in the 2000 election. Bush creamed Gore in the republican won states for the most part. The democrats need to not only hold the states won by Gore, they need to win the south and southwest. They need to win to Ohio, and the other staunchly republican states. The only person who can appeal to these states is Clark. He's tough and has the creditentials. He'll absolutely crush Bush in the debates when it comes to foreign policy. And best of all he's very liberal.
