KETCHUM, Idaho John Kerry lost 68 percent of the vote in Idaho.

But in Blaine County, a Democratic enclave where the Massachussetts senator has a vacation home, Kerry won a majority of voters.

Last week, he was back in Ketchum, thanking supporters at a local Democratic Party meeting.
Betty Murphy, the chairwoman of Democrats in Blaine County, called Kerry's visit a wonderful Christmas present.

She said he was upbeat despite his loss a month and a half earlier, when the Democratic party also lost ground in Congress.

He urged 35 party members at the meeting to set their sights on 2008.

He stayed about 45 minutes at the Ski and Heritage Museum in Ketchum.
