not trying to rub it in, but what happened to kerry in va?  we all heard about the 'trend' and NOVA going democratic.  kerry pissed away a bunch of money in the state.  in the end it turned out to be a no-contest.

what went wrong?

You can be our next waltermitty, although perhaps a slightly better-informed version, and without the fetish for really old women.

they took a bit of a shot there... no different than Bush in Hawaii or New Jersey, which weren't any closer than Virginia.

yes, but he still lost by a decent margin.  Let us not forget Bush gained 4% nationally from 2000.  If the election had been a tie, theoretically Kerry may have been within 4 or 5% in Virginia, and Kerry may have won NJ by 9 or 10%.  The real surprise was Bush's margin in the popular vote.  So much for undecideds breaking to the challenger.

I actually wrote a long reply to this. I read it and realised it was the "string up the strategists" rant again.


Many apologies
