Welcome to the boards by the way!
Thanks for your kind words. I think. Is it necessary to be condescending in every single post?
The ultimate irony, of course, is that you would be screaming and tearing your hair out if Gore or Kerry had won a tight, contested election, calling bloody murder, fraud, and worse. (See the post above about 1960.) But since the system has favored your guy twice in a row, it is reasonable to me that you don't want to see it changed.
The pendulum will swing the other way soon enough. It would just be nice if we could get beyond short-term self-interest and construct a system that is actually fair. Then our campaigns might result in an actual exchange of ideas and reasoned debate.
