For most of 1990s many members and sympathisers of Democratic Party try to convince people that Republican in White House represents fate worse than death. However, once it happened, only a fraction of them took those views seriously and now, with Wesley Clark emerging as unstoppable Bush-busting machine, most take the pragmatic and realistic approach to those issues.
Unfortunately, history gives many examples of people starting to believe their own propaganda. One such individual came to the most logical conclusion of based on the results 2000 US presidential elections – any country that elects someone like George W. Bush as its leader has forfeited its right to exist (at least in presently recognisable form).
Thankfully, I live in a country where having your party in opposition might be unpleasant, but not unpleasant enough for people to take such radical remedies to their plight.
