Small comfort, I know, but John Kerry's vote total exceeded that of any other presidential candidate in history, apart from his opponent -- and yet we're going to be told what a big loser he was. And George W. Bush has now driven 50 million people to the polls to vote against him twice, something that's never been done before -- recall that Al Gore has the fourth-highest popular vote total ever. Yet we're going to hear that what Bush stands for is what the country as a whole believes. Bush won a big victory, but we were a 50-50 nation four years ago, and we're not very different now.
