Sure, except for West Virginia and Florida. Even if Kerry (supposing he's the Dem's choice) picks Edwards as a running-mate, he won't have a chance winning a single electoral vote there, except from those two...even then, it'll take some effort. Even Edwards hinted as much when he said that 'talking like this, I can beat Bush in the South'--meaning, only a Southener can win the South.

Already the Republicans are calling him a Yankee Liberal who's out of step with the morals of most Americans. Let the alienation begin.

Kerry will win states in the south. This myth that Southern's won't vote for someone from the north is foolish and insulting to Southerners.

Smash can you give us some examples of Presidents form the North that have carried the South in an national contest.

Thanks

Yes he did win 7 southern states in the 1960 election. So that makes him the ONLY Northerner in the last 50 years to be put in the Whitehouse, buy carrying the South.

So what was your point?

Well, you know, no Texas Repbulican has won two terms in the last 500 years!

I guess Kerry can't loose automatically!

My point is that you have none. Carter, LBJ, and Clinton all happened to be southerners. Regan and Nizon were Californians. Did anyone start saying "Only Republicnas from California can win the White House!!" when Bush Sr. was running?

Gee, why not? Oh that's right, because it would have been a pointless, meaningless statistic with no value whatsover.

Moron.

You have presented no evidence to support you claim that it is a myth that a Southerner will not vote for a Northerner. (one election in fifty years is weak) I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you. I just want you to tell us something to back up you statement. So far the best you can do is call me a idiot and a moron. If that is how you are going to prove you statement....well I guess that is the best you can do.

I wash my hands of you.

I presented Kennedy.

QED, *****. Unarguable.

Quote:

No. It's not weak. For it to be weak, there would have to be evidence of a Northerner who ran and won the North, but lost the election because of the South.

Where is that evidence? McCarthy? Didn't win the North. Should we conclude that he lost because of that? Dukakis lost in a landlside. Where's the Northerner who didn't loose nearly EVERYWHERE who lost in the South?

There isn't one.

Quote:

I did. You haven't shown a single shred of evidence to back up yours. Sorry, but you don't get a free pass because other morons might nod and agree with you despite there being no evidence.

Quote:

The best that I could do was DISPROVE YOUR STATEMENT WITH A CLEAR UNARGUABLE HISTORICAL EXAMPLE.

You're a moron because it didn't occur to you before you decided to post. You're an idiot because you offer no evidence of your own and then when I offer evidence that DESTROYS YOUR ARGUMENT UTTERLY. You attempt to discard it.


Quote:

Sure you do. If you can't take the heat...

I wouldn't want to argue with someone who's so superior to me intelectually that he destroys the pathetic argument I was parroting that I heard on Fox News to the point where all I can do is run away.

I feel your pain.

Still, though, I love you man.

Kerry cannot win the South because his Mass. football team just stole the election, errr, Superbowl from the winner of the popular vote, err, I mean, team with most heart, the Panthers.

What true Southerner is going to vote for a man who represents the Yankee evil which yoinked a championship out from under their feet?

New England Patriots > Carolina Panthers = Losing the South again in November

Kerry should have figured out a way to throw the game so the election would be in the bag. If this isn't a prime example of **** poor strategic planning, I don't know what is...

The south can't be carried by a Mass. Liberal..... FACE IT! Kenedy (I know it's spelt wrong! GET OVER IT) was not a Mass. Liberal, He was a semi-conservative minded (NOTE THE SEMI!) democrat, who got that our country needed to be defended, and simply appealed to the south! I would have voted for him!
