The blogs are all slamming Trent Lott for saying positive remarks about US Sen. Strom Thurmond at his 100th birthday party. Thurmond ran for president in 1948, and Lott suggested that we'd have been better off if he won. He said that he was proud to vote for Thurmond.

Maybe we would have been better off. I'm not a big Harry Truman fan. I figure that Thurmond has gotten millions of votes over his long political career. Are all those voters bad people? Just what bad things do these bloggers think would have happened if Thurmond had been elected US president? They don't say.
