    has been the laundry list.

    It doesn't inspire.  It is boring.

    He sprinkles policy in with the inspiration and it seems to work much, much better.

    Health care is a human right.

      Who gives policy wonk speeches all the time?

      Candidates who end up losing, that's who.

      We've realized for years that we need a candidate with an actual message that sells to more voters than the intelligentsia on both coasts.  Now we have a midwestern candidate with no just a good message, but a  knockout message that has the GOP shaking in their boots.

      Yet we still see all this serious discussion about this bill or that bill.

      Don't get me wrong, they can't let people like Kirk Watson go on the air unprepared like that, but let's not get suckered into thinking that Obama has to become more like Dukakis.
