Greg Palast: Why Democrats Don't Count

Or, to put it my way, the Democratic Party needs to include street
protests in its bag of tricks, like Lopez Obrador and that Ukrainian
guy in whose food Vladimir Putin put poison:

In retrospect, it’s really quite astounding that John Kerry had no
protest operation already ready to hit the streets, considering what
had happened in 2000. In other corrupt ‘democracies’ the opposition
have it all on standby the day of the likely-to-be-phonied election.

Think about it: John Edwards, the guy who actually wanted to put up a
fight was also the guy who had given up a budding Senate career, being
willing to pack up and go home at the end of the day. This is not a
mere coincidence. Kerry reportedly objected that people would say
‘bad’ things about them if they fought, to which Edwards reportedly
responded ‘So, what!’
