You've overthrown Tom Delay and Bush's numbers are in the dumper and there's war fatigue and rising gas prices. It's the political equivalent of a slow, fat, hanging curveball. All you need to do is hit it.
And for once, I think you guys just might pull it off. The key is to sound thoughtful, moderate, reasonable, responsible ... you know, like adults. It would help if you can some actual, card-carrying adults among your politicians, instead of a bunch of weenie women. But there are adult Democrats ... somewhere. They're probably in some place like Minnesota, Ohio or Wisconsin.
