It seems like every election, there's something to regret. Even with a big win, there's probably some down-ticket candidate who's campaign blew up in flames - yet deserved to win. Maybe there's a candidate from a different state you respected and admired, yet lost a tough fight. It could be anything, but there's almost always going to be something to regret during an election.
Tomorrow, when people go to their polls, Ned Lamont is probably going to lose. He was a good candidate abandoned by the Democratic Party, in favor of the machine-establishment. The very fact that a possibly Democratically-controlled Senate could be poisoned by that disgrace-of-a-human-being for another six years sickens me, but it's a reality everyone must face. He lies through his teeth, but people bought it and few proud Democrats stood up and said the truth.
In light of the mass-defection by elected Democrats and the do-nuthin attitude of almost every other party leader, a new line has been drawn. The line has been drawn here: Those who actively supported Ned Lamont will have my future support. Those who didn't, won't.
Thankfully, John Kerry actually stood up for the Democratic Nominee when most others backed off. When Bill Clinton and Chuck Schumer actively worked against Ned Lamont, John Kerry actually went and stumped for him. John Kerry will need to do more to win a second nomination for President, but he just cleared the first hurdle from this blog and hundreds more like it. It's not enough to have the right stance on the issues, an elected Democrat must be committed to obeying the will of the party's primary decision.
