    I give it to you again.  

    heh.  

    Material grabbers will fall prey to a lot of tricks and traps.

    If your just concerned with grabbing your opponent's pieces, then you get a certain kind of game.  

    More advanced play requires setting up situations that lead to a positional advantage.  Often, players will sacrifice material in order to gain positional dominance.  

    The healthcare issue and taxes are prime examples.  They knew who they were going to run against.  They knew it would be pretty much the same policies as Bush on taxes, but they also knew about Romneycare.

      •  I wouldn't say that (0+ / 0-)

        I'd say we are in the process of trading down into an end game, and Romney was a man with nothing to lose, so he went all out for it.

        It may have a momentary impact, but I tend to doubt it.
