Kerry on the lost election: "I know we screwed up"

From Fark, I found this account from the Hollywood liberal who recounts what was said in an off-the-record meeting Sen. John Kerry conducted with a group of bloggers:


The meeting was off the record so no one took any notes or recorded what was said. The first question went straight to the point, about how pissed off so many Democratic voters, are about what happened with the election, and also that it seemed like most Democrats in Congress had no idea how bad the situation was. Kerry responded by dropping the whole political routine and speaking like he was off the record to a bunch of people that already know what’s going on anyway. "Look I know how bad things are, I know that people are pissed off, I know we screwed up."
There's more in there, but this left me wondering if Kerry himself believes that it was the 60,000 votes in Ohio that cost him the election, or if indeed it was him and his campaign.
