John Kerry

He had the hair, the height and a war hero's gravitas. He ran with a sunshine boy and had Michael Moore and the French behind him. He lost, the pundits said, in good measure because too many voters didn't believe he would do the best job of thwarting another terrorist attack. "Our fight goes on," Kerry intoned in his concession speech. For now, it's back to his old job as the junior Senator from Massachusetts.
