    More of the same. Conspiracy theories, voter fraud accusations, bitching about what the Republicans did rather than trying to fix what they did wrong... Pretty much par for the course.

    The rumblings I am hearing about the campaign is already focusing on the negative and how the Repubs did this or that wrong...not one thing about what the Dems are going to do. I know I sure would be willing to listen to and seriously consider a "plan" but they never offer one.

    Hell, they can`t put the 2000 elections in Florida behind them. One can only wonder what they`ll do after getting hammered in `08.

    My bet for 08 is a moderate republican president and a split congress.

    Nope. Overwhelming republican victory. No dem has publicly made sense in six years.

    Do the Dem's even have a policy stand, other than "not the GOP's policies?"

    Even if the did offer a palatable plan, I'm not sure I'd trust them to follow through on any but the most liberal aspects of it.

    More accurately its stated, "Not the GOP Policy. We're going to do what the GOP does but better."

    So far the Dems only campaign plan and slogan is to run on "We're not Bush!" They figure everybody is so angry at Bush that they'll be distracted enough not to realize that they copied the GOP plan, made it more expensive, and plan to hike taxes even further after the current ones expire...

    I am sure they'll run on reintroducing that horrible healthcare program that had 13 different ways to go to prison for seeing a doctor.
