I must be wrong, but I thought the reason the Democrats nominated John Kerry for President in 2004 was that he was “electable.”

After reading David’s comparison of Bush and Kerry on Iraq, I realized that I should stipulate that I’m not the least bit sympathetic with those who would distract their critics by magnifying the impropriety of whatever Kerry might have said or intended; I’m ruefully intrigued, though, by the use and effects of the term “electable.”
