Worst. Campaign. Ever.

While not quite as bad as Rudy's campaign, one should also remember a certain Democratic frontrunner who threw it all away...

WASHINGTON - Sen. Joe Lieberman — stalwart supporter of the invasion of Iraq — as the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee?

Unthinkable? In retrospect, yes, but according to the Gallup Poll of 438 Democrats in April 2003 — at a point about where we now are in the 2008 presidential campaign cycle — Lieberman was the Democratic frontrunner.

He got 23 percent of Democrats in the Gallup survey, defeating Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., who placed second, and an array of other Democrats.

That article's from last Spring, so we aren't at the same point in the campaign now.
