Democrats Are Risking Political Damnation: "During a debate in the 2000 primary campaign, the GOP candidates were asked to name the philosopher who had most affected their lives. Bush's answer was unique: Jesus Christ. As a senior advisor to Al Gore at the time, I recall the reaction in Democratic circles: laughter and disbelief. Bush was seen as a dunce at best, a panderer at worst. 'George Bush probably can't even name a philosopher,' was repeated so often in progressive circles that it became a theme. How could such an 'uneducated person' win?"
The Democrats should remember wardrobe-challenged Janet Jackson, which was the incident that took Howard Stern off the air and cancelled Victoria's Secret. American values changed after 9/11.
