"And Democratic donors, still reeling from their party's disastrous midterm election results, were openly expressing an almost mournful level of skepticism about the party's prospects of defeating President George Bush in an election in 2004".

"I am sure that we all feel the same frustration over our party's inability to field a winning candidate for President," the letter read."
