I’ve been thinking about this today and decided to put it into poll form.
Yeah. It’s a mind screw isn’t it? I’ll add my analysis later. I’d like to see what you think.
UPDATE: John Kerry should’ve won in 2004. Think about it. We might’ve avoided the Bankruptcy Bill, the Military Commissions Act and the various FISA laws. The Katrina response might’ve been bad, but not batshit crazy like it was under President Bush. Iraq might be winding down right now. The list goes on and on. There are so many awful things from the last four years — we seriously needed John Kerry to win that election. As for Senator Obama, his time would’ve arrived. Very likely in 2012, had Kerry won. In other words, we could’ve had both: a Kerry victory, and this historic Obama campaign. Just not on this timeline.
