    Nope. Gore lost it all by himself. Pushing Ralph in front of that is a piss-poor excuse, not that people won't make it.

    And the trend to losing continued into the last election, where, again, it wasn't that the republicans won, but the democrats just didn't really show up.

    The exception, as always, was here in Massachusetts, where there are hardly _any_ republicans _to_ show up, and the majority of the candidates elected actually run _unopposed_. (The reason I am registered republican in this state is not because of some itching political allegiance, but because I like fairness and equilibrium in all things, because I come from a strong two-party state, and was shocked at the state of compliance and apathy here. Then again, as Will Rogers would sort of say, 'it's easy to belong to no organized party- register as a Democrat'. I side with the underdog party here, not with any ideology represented, if there really is one. And, registering within one party in no way demands that I vote for the candidates of that party. In fact, I have only voted for the person who actually won two times. Oh well....)
