Two More Years

If the 2006 elections were a rebuke against an unpopular George Bush, I believe that in much the same way the 2008 elections will be his ultimate repudiation. Democrats would do well to remember that President Bush is deeply unpopular and the wave of disatisfaction which carried them to victory last November has yet to crash into shore. George Bush has rededicated himself to defying the better counsel of nearly everyone from lifetime foreign policy and military men to the wishes of typical American working class voters, as consistently shown by polls. Some Dems may believe that they need to temper their message to "lock in" the votes of those who may have switched affilations, but this is misguided thinking. Instead of looking to emasculate their message for a few swing voters, they should consider all the evidence that shows the youth vote to be more Democratic than its been in a while. It would be unwise to disappoint those new voters.
