Bush won Ohio based more on the gay marriage issue than war on terror. I really think the wedge issue that will be ripe by 2008 is national healthcare. Sell it as Medicare for everyone. Don't like government in healthcare? Then you hate Medicare. Talk to your mommy: she loves her Medicare. It would help our businesses be more competitive.
Democrats have been scared of healthcare since Hillary. Propose no plan: details to be negotiated with the loyal opposition. Its time has come.
