11:05 on 11/3

At 11:05 am (EST) Kerry surrenders. Tears are flowing my house. My beloved Patriot has given it her all for more than a year only to see her efforts fall short.

I see opportunity here. In the days to come, it will be clear how and why the Democrats fell short-unclear messages, a somewhat dispassionate candidate (he may have admired JFK, but was no JFK) and a more powerful job of organization by the opponent.

The time is NOW for Democrats to retool. To me, everything is a sports analogy. Democrats need a new owner, a new coach, new players, new offensive and defensive schemes and a return to fundamentals. The Democrats are on the clock.
