    Democrats have been running with the same old same old for at least 80 years now, and you guys seem quite happy with it.

      I'm a big FDR fan, with a soft spot for RFK ;-)

      Point is, I guess, that you can't expect Perot voters to love the GOP because you stick a different shade of lipstick on the pig. What's in the box matters, not what's on the box.

      Yeah, i get it. Some Perot voters are natural bacon lovers. Can't argue with that. ;-)

      Difference between parties, as referenced in the main piece? Dems accept that sometimes you have to redistribute wealth to the have nots (arguing how to do it as fairly as possible is time well spent). GOP simply does not accept that it is ever necessary.
