What Are They Thinking?

As puzzling as it is to understand how the Bush administration plans to spin its stance on stem cell research to voters this fall, it's more important to recognize that crazier things have happened in politics, and the Democrats cannot simply hope that the American public will respond appropriately. It's up not only to the Democratic Party, but the entire progressive movement, to blow the whistle on what continues to be a shameful presidency supported by a corrupt majority party in congress.

But the message doesn't have to be negative and vindictive. Americans will respond positively to a compassionate message sent by the party that is willing to put its money where its mouth is on new cures for diseases. This is a concrete issue that affects virtually every voter in the nation; it's easily enough to swing independent and even Republican votes into the Democratic column.

Take a look at these numbers. The GOP has nobody on this issue.
