A number of conservatives thought the same thing through the Clinton years....
Yeah, I sure hated that budget surplus and not spending $87 billion on a war based on false pretenses.

Keep yer chin up, U2D. In the great cities of America—New York, Chicago, LA, Philly, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Miami—the centers of art, culture, education and business, where people value diversity, community, expression, and the free exchange of ideas, Kerry/Edwards dominated the vote by an 80 to 20 margin. So you're not alone.

Bush won in the suburbs and in rural America, where the predominant factor ruling their lives is FEAR. Bush sold fear and America bought it. Fear of homosexuality, fear of terrorism, fear of change.

But what can ya do, but keep fighting for truth, justice and what's right in your heart.

U2dem. Sorry, I'm not a Democrat but I DO support anyone that stands up for what s/he believes in and tries to make a difference. (listen to that Veggie Tales song, "Stand up! Stand up! for what you belieeeeeeeve in!") At least Kerry will have a position in the Senate. It wasn't all for naught! And Kerry won my state even though the west side is full of rich white conservatives!

I'm definitely NOT giving up. If anything, this only drives me even more for future political victories. I'll try to be as strong as I can during the immediate aftermath of this election, but I just feel like I've been run over by a truck.


I appreciate the light hearted Edwards jokes, they make me smile .

Edwards 2008!!!!

U2Democrat, I share your pain and I am deeply disappointed, too.

Keep your chin up and never lose hope.

U2 Dem, I feel your pain..
This is the first election I have actually gone to bed crying and got up crying. I'm still trying to figure out why this hit me so hard. I've been through quite a few election morning afters, but this one really hurts...
The one thing that will keep me going is the fact there will be house and senate elections in the near future and it's just as important to have some balance in these branches of govt., as much if not more than who the President is..
Right now however, I'm still totally bummed...

Oh, I do wish to congradulate all the Bush supporters out there. I would want to be respected for my opinion if the shoe was on the other foot. I know your are just as happy as I am sad.

I'm not saying I want that, but mark my words...

The bright side is that Bush gets to try to clean up his own mess.

That's the saddest point of all.

Yeah, I feel like I've been hit by a freight train. I'm so glad I'm leaving town today. I'm flying into, of all places, Washington D.C! I don't believe in letting the political situation run my life. I'd rather do that myself. When I get home I may act on the massive poster board purchase for my protest signs.
