In '04 many of us online liberals were cautiously optimistic that Kerry would win. And there was good reason for that! He came pretty damn close, and given the circumstances at that time that was actually pretty remarkable. I certainly didn't think Kerry was the perfect candidate (who is) or that they ran a perfect campaign (they didn't) but it was still pretty impressive how close he came to winning.

But right now the conservative line is "ROMNEY'S GOING TO WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

He might. But there isn't any reason to be confident of that.
