"Sen. Kerry is a war hero, but if campaigns were about war records, I would have won easily in 1996."

-- Bob Dole, writing in the Wall Street Journal.

Yeah, Bob has a good point there. Elections, at least for incumbets, are about results. In 1996 Bill Clinton had presided over the addition of millions of jobs to the economy and a major reduciton in the deficit. Needless to say, Clinton went on to crush Dole. George W. Bush has overseen the loss of millions of jobs, the largest deficits in history and misled the public about almost every single policy from the tax cuts to Iraq....

Anyway, thanks for your astute political analysis. I am sure its always spot on, because you can always trust the judgement of a loser.
