    In a parallel universe in which Kerry doesn't win the Dem nomination, would you still be voting for the challenger?

    Would you be a Dean/Gephart/Edwards/Kucinic/Sharpton (heh) Republican? I guess what I want to know is, does it matter who the opposition is, or is it more than Anybody But Bush? Who wouldn't you vote for?

    Well for me:
    Edwards: yes, my preferred candidate in the primaries.
    Sharpton/Kucinich: probably not, though any scenario where one of them won the Dem nomination would be, um, far-fetched.
    Gephardt: dunno, he's never done much for me.
    Dean: hmm, funny, I had a discussion with a liberal I was seeing (back in the days when Dean's campaign had the momentum of a runaway freight train :D ). She was a fan; I thought that he wasn't presidential material. Hmm, sounds like our current White House occupant.

    So, I guess my point is that I'd vote for some Dems, but not all.

    Dean - Yes - He has the most moderate record of any of the Dem. candidates (except for possibly Leiberman)
    Gephart - No. Too anti-business
    Edwards - No. Full of $hit
    Kucinich - No. Too Socialist
    Sharpton - Yes - Because he would absolutely change the world and be entertaing as hell while doing it.
    Graham - Yes - Great Senatorial record. A real statesman
    Clark - Yes
    Braun - No - Too Dumb
    Leiberman - No - Big loser

    Short of Sharpton, just about anyone would get my vote over Bush.

    Y'know, a lot of people thought Sharpton would be a factor in the Democratic primaries.

    He was: There was the Sharpton Line, which was that line of polling and/or results that Sharpton got. The closer any of the other candidates got to that line, the less they could spin away the suck. At or below? You sucked. Case closed.

    Which brings me to my point: Back when the pollsters were comparing matchups against Bush during primary season, I wanted to see Sharpton included in those numbers. That would have given all of us a true f-you number for Bush.
