if we'd been elected...

This quote by McGovern last night (via ) reminds me of Trent Lott's accolade for Jesse Helms last year: "'If [Mondale, Dukakis] and I had been elected, we'd have a whale of a better country today,' he crowed, to lusty cheers from the crowd."

I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Repubs start circulating horror stories based on this premise--looking at some of the most extreme platform points of the three candidacies and then extrapolating worst case scenarios.

Unfortunately, Dem don't have to extrapolate anything, they simply need to observe reality.
