losing my momentum...

Donna Brazile asks why Kerry sat on so much money at the end of his campaign. $15M to be exact.

Why's the cynical side of me saying "ok, I guess she wants to be the next DNC chair. Howard's got competition" in response to this, instead of thinking about the statement itself?

``The party will demand it.'' ... uh huh.
Apart from the party demanding money as if they are owed it somehow, or that it is theirs somehow, I really don't see that this article does anything other than underscore two facts.

1) Parties expect that votes can be "bought". I'm not talking about paying votes, I'm talking about advertising = votes.

2) In the states where the Democrats borrowed heavily to pay for such advertising, they still ended up _LOSING_!

So, I'm fairly confident in saying that someone is not getting the clue. This isn't about the money, it's about the message.

I'd just like to say that, by "to be exact" I meant "approximately."

Oops.
