2008: What's in store?

"Americans are by and large in a sour mood. The only hope for Republicans in 2008, it seems, is that voters will be more soured on Democrats than Republicans for House and Senate seats, and be more turned off by Hillary than whomever the GOP offers up.

It's a slender reed of hope on which to bet the future of America. For if the Dems sweep the White House and Congress, every Republican Bush-hater will soon long for the yesterday of GW. A Socialist-Fascist America run by a criminal political mafia and enforced by hundreds of hyper-liberal judges.

Yet fear of this, fear of Hillary - FOH - will not be sufficient to prevent this. What the voters have to be offered is something so exciting, so electrifying, so positive yet well-grounded, well-thought-out and researched so it is actually achievable, that it sweeps away the sourness.

This is what happened in 1994. The electorate was in this same crummy mood, and the GOP came up with the Contract With America. The CWA was an exciting positive vision that was real and achievable. Voters responded by ending the Democrat Party's monopoly control of 64 years (with two irrelevant interruptions) over the House.

What Republicans need is the CWA's equivalent for 2008."
