Keep hope in power

"Politically speaking, the American people will never select a party to lead them that appears infected with a Tourettes like rage. They will always opt for strength and optimism over weakness and pessimism. Think FDR,Truman and JFK."

From Bull-Moose Blog.

Ah, you say, what about 1994 and the Contract On America?

For all the anti-Clinton rage in that movement, it still fundamentally was a movement *for* something, in this case smaller government and a host of other GOP wishlist items.

America was founded on hope. And Americans naturally gravitate towards politicians who give them that hope. Reagan, Bush 1 and Clinton understood this. For some reason, the harder-left branch of the Dems don't get it.

Maybe you are being too clever my friend, it was the Contract With America.

Then again, you may have been making a Canuck comment regarding politics in the Lower 48.
