I know we’re all depressed, but we should focus on some of the important forward steps we took this year. We discovered some new leaders in Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, and John Edwards. We showed the world a classy, statemanlike, intelligent candidate in John Kerry. We raised a quarter of a billion dollars for the campaign, thanks in part to Joe Trippi and Howard Dean’s innovative use of the internet. We stuck to our principles while the GOP abandoned theirs.
We campaigned against hatred and fear while throwing everything we had into the fight. My chin is up.
