Well, Kerry took NH, and will probably take the nomination. He most certainly will not beat Bush in an election. This must make Ted Rall nigh-hysterical:
Bush is a disaster. He has nearly bankrupted the federal government and many states with his profligate spending policies.

And it's a fair bet that he's planning more unwinnable wars for 2005. The Democratic Party needs its best chance at defeating him this fall, and that chance isn't in the form of John Kerry.No question about it. By the way, how wrong is Dean on this one:
