    And get over 2004.

    •  His biggest mistake (6+ / 0-)

      was allowing himself to be sunk by the Swiftboaters

      and running a campaign which had no ground game.

      The people who worked in the third party organizations which went into swing states can tell you a thing or two about how incompetent and clueless the Kerry organization was.

      As a supporter AND donor and volunteer, it was constantly frustrating to deal with an organization such as Kerry's which had no rapid response, and where the candidate was unable to shake Rove's jujitsu.

      Edwards was the least of his problems.
