    It is such solid political strategy.  It is a winner for Obama.  So far, and I am not keeping track mind you, ALL of the "wars" that the democrats are creating make for good campaign strategy.

    And there is an ever-increasing number of "wars" being created.  

    Someone in the Obama camp is a genius.

    Only horses should wear blinders.

      In fact, the White House, until this week, has refused to use the term at all. When I interviewed Dan Pfeiffer at Netroots Nation last year, I specifically asked if the WH agreed that there is a war on women, and he said that was not the kind of language the WH uses. The party, with the exception of some Democratic women, has refused to really embrace this framing until very recently. And even then, there's real reluctance by much of the leadership and "strategists."

      This happened because of regular men and women raising holy hell since Republicans took the House and immediately started gunning for women's health care. This wasn't top down; it is legitimately grassroots.
