  •  What Have You Done For me Lately? (0+ / 0-)

    Working class Dems vote for people who have delivered for them.  The only people who've delivered for them are establishment candidates.

    You could argue that if given the power Obama would deliver more, but it comes down to my subject line:

    "What have you done for me lately?"

    •  viscious circle (0+ / 0-)
    •  Well, but why risk what you can't afford to lose? (0+ / 0-)

      People aren't that crazy...not working people, anyway, who align themselves with the Democratic Party.

      What is the evidence that "if given the power Obama would deliver more?"  None.  Accepting such a notion would require a faith-based 'hope to Hell I'm right' vote...

      It's not so much 'what have you done for me lately?' (See the results of the Bush elections!) but more likely 'what have you ever done for me...at all?'  The 90s were good to most individuals and to the country as a whole.  It was a Clinton who delivered.  Simple logic...been there, done that...can do it again.

      Tell me how you spend your time and how you spend your money -- I'll tell you what your values are.
