Hypothetical Democrat to the rescue!
Have you heard about Hypothetical Democrat? He/she is the man/woman to beat in 2004. Hypothetical Democrat hates fluorescent lights and rainy days, but loves small puppies. Is fudge-ripple your favorite ice cream flavor? Hypothetical Democrat too! He/she’s the greatest.
So you can understand why the Democrats are so excited over Hypothetical Democrat: a poll commissioned by the DNC shows he/she beats George Bush by 46%-42%. How do actual flesh-and-blood Democrats stack up? Not so well – all of the major Presidential candidates would lose to President Bush in the election. Hypothetically.
