No

I would NOT choose Warner, Richardson, Gephardt, or anyone who wasn't exciting enough. I would probably go with John Breaux.

Oh yes...

If Kerry so badly wanted to lose, he really should choose Miller. 5% of votes for Nader...

Probably Warner or Gephart. Bayh would also be a distinct possibility. Ideally, it would be a democrat that sticks to his guns relatively well and have been elected in a very conservative area. Brad Henry or Dave Fruedenthal look like good choices, but these oil-field democrats aren't very ambitious.

He should have chosen someone like Dean (but not Dean) who would stay in the news and generate some kind of energy.

But he should also have appointed Mark Warner as potential emperor for life upon his winning.  That would almost surely have guaranteed a floor of 96% of the vote.  MARK WARNER

Oh yeah I forgot about dear old Brad. But I already picked him in the "You are Barack Obama" scenario to deflect claims that Obama would be a gun grabbing envirofacist socialist.

He second choice was Bob Graham

Bob Graham
Dick Gephardt
Howard Dean.

John Edwards would of made a better candidate at the top of the tickey, he wasn't an effective communicator at the vice presidency level.

Mark Warner because he puts Virginia in play in 2004.  Putting Virginia in play would have forced Bush to defend more turf, making other battlegrounds like Ohio, New Mexico, Iowa, Nevada, and Florida a little more vulnerable and harder to defend.  John Edwards never really put North Carolina in play.

Bob Graham of Florida would have been an excellent pick too.

McCain if he had accepted. Howard Dean would also be great.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

McCain would have been great on paper, but wouldn't have made GOP voters to switch.

Nunn and Lugar would have had to be considered because of the mood at that time.

But, Strickland not being enough known at the time, I would have picked Evan Bayh.

Remember Kerry lost because of big GOP GOTV and many referendums, questions, polls on social and values issues.
So, Bayh would have been meant to cut all these operations.

Not sure for AZ, nor for IA.

While not being bad in Iowa, Florida, Missouri, Bayh may have won Ohio and that's the key.

Evan Bayh. He's fairly young, hails from a conservative state, and is a centrist, which could have made the difference.

Right but he may have been too much for some Dems.
And he may have said some "gaffes"... And on foreign policy matters, Bush campaign would have found many contrarian points between the 2.
So, I'm not so sure.

A risky choice. And, as you've said that I AM John Kerry, I CHOOSE Evan Bayh and YOU are fired from my staff ! Wink

Bob Graham. If Kerry could carry Florida, and still carry Wisconsin, he wins.
