    "Together, We Can Do Better" or "Together, America Can Do Better,"

    "Together" and "we" convey the message that Dems are on America's side.

    It can convey that America hasn't done better under the Republicans.  It also allows Democrats to flesh the message out by reminding people that the 1990s rocked, and the Big Dog was pres, and many Democratic criticisms of the GOP and Dubya fall in nicely under that slogan (e.g. corruption, federal deficit, etc.)

    It's short, simple, and sounds like a really good tag line at the end of an ad. It's something that every Dem candidate can put in ther campaign lit. It'll unify the Dems in a very broad way, but with the Dems, this might actually be an improvement, lol.

    When voters hear "we can do better," they'll think, "well, okay. IA that we can do better, but how?" That's where the Dem platform comes in.

    "Together" also allows down the ticket candidates to use that slogan, too. I can see this being used down the ticket to the office of dog catcher. We'll get lots of repetition, which is crucial in an environment with such diversified media.

    The slogan also works, because the vast majority thinks that America is going in the wrong direction. It taps into what Americans are feeling about the GOP-controlled government.

    Now, I'm not saying that this is the best slogan that the Dems could come up with, but there are many reasons to be for it. Don't just look at the slogan at face value. Think about what concepts it communicates and how it taps into the American psyche.
