Pathetic ... And Bound To Lose XXXIV: The Great Beyond

Although this series has been titled Pathetic ... And Bound To Lose, the Man Without Qualities is fully aware of the possibility that John Kerry might actually win. I do not view Mr. Bush as unbeatable. A Kerry win would take a fluke, but flukes happen - they're not even all that uncommon in politics.

But I wonder how many Democrats understand that the worst possible thing for the Democratic Party at this point would be a John Kerry presidency.

After four years of that man as their indubitable face, the next Democratic convention could be held in a closet. The reign of Jimmy Carter would seem like an apocryphal golden age in comparison to the Kerry years. It would take far more than a fluke to stave off that consequence.
