In case you were starting to get fooled
Just a friendly reminder--51% is NOT a mandate. Then again, this is the guy who thought being appointed by the Supreme Court was a mandate.
Go to this graphic, click on "previous results" and "1984 General." As disgusting as it is, Reagan had a mandate--the man won Massachusetts, for crying out loud, and Mondale got a mere 13 electoral votes. Then look at this year's map. Kerry BARELY lost, and Bush BARELY won. Not a mandate.
