Basically the opposite of the other thread.

2004, 1988, 1976 (as it turned out, anyway, as Carter looked good at the time), 1964

PBrunsel went all the way back. I tried just to focus on the modern era. By the way, True Dem, most historians think Cox would have been a magnificent President. Just thought I'd share.

Cox would have been a fine President, but saying "President Cox" just makes me feel uncomfortable. Wink

Not all of us have our minds in a gutter, Paul, lol. Now that you say it, I now must find that I need to laugh at his last name, lol.

You think Kerry would have been a good President?

He may have been indifferant Alcon, or supported Bush to a greater extent.

He said that both Bush and Gore would make poor Presidents since he included 2000, but didn't include 2004, which would indicate that he thinks Kerry would make a better President.  I doubt he does, though.

I said 2000 baecuase I felt Governor Bush was too inexperienced and Vice-President Gore was simply a beurocrat's dream coke true. In 2004 I felt both men would be unpopular presidents, so that one was nulled.

Bad candidates or people who would have been bad Presidents?
Kerry was clearly a bad candidate who would have been a good President.

At the time...

1832, 1856, 1872, 1896, 1900, 1964 (as much as I like Goldwater, I can't actually imagine him as President), 2004 (maybe)

It's really scary when I agree with Tweed.  Nonetheless, I will here.
