    ... we'd have much more leverage if the Republican candidate was stronger. The worse the Republican is, the worse that the Democrat can get away with being ... so, if the Republican was threatening to cut Social Security benefits, the Democrat would have to plant a flag on keeping benefits where they are. With the Republican threatening to destroy Medicare, the Democrat is free to quietly threaten to cut Social Security benefits at the convention and in campaign advertising, and get away with it.
