CORRECTION...:

On healthcare, Democrats need to be like GOP (Robert Reich, 9/01/09, Salon)

What we learned in August is something we've long known but keep forgetting: The most important difference between America's Democratic left and Republican right is that the left has ideas and the right has discipline. Obama and progressive supporters of health care were outmaneuvered in August -- not because the right had any better idea for solving the health care mess but because the rights' attack on the Democrats' idea was far more disciplined than was the Democrats' ability to sell it.

...Republicans are winning because no one is paying a lick of attention to them. The Democrats have the media to themselves and the more they talk the worse they do.
