Did good on Maddow just now.. While I do think the Kerry campaign left a lot to be desired, and one can't separate the campaign from the candidate all that much, I do think Kerry the candidate personally was a lot better than many give him credit for. He wasn't my choice for candidate - I was somewhat of a detractor in a primary in which I tried (unsuccessfully of course) to remain fairly neutral - but I think people tend to forget that he almost won. In liberal blog world, Bush and the Iraq war were hideously unpopular in 11-04, but in the actual world that wasn't quite yet the case. Kerry actually did pretty damn well. Not damn well enough, sadly, but he did okay.
