M2's analysis was obviously excellent. Each party has a problem in coming up with a candidate who can bridge the gap and appeal to voters on the other side. I don't believe that Howard Dean would have had any more appeal to red state voters than Kerry had, and, other than John McCain, there are not a lot of Republicans who are both sufficently conservative to hold the G.O.P. base together and still appeal to those in blue states.
