    Even if Bush had a grassroots army, they wouldn't be as effective, because they don't have the same potential voters out there waiting for them that we do.  They don't have equally effective arguments.  And their temperaments aren't as appealing as ours.  

    That all sounds a bit smug, but it's true.  Bush's strongest supporters would be disproportionately Christian conservatives, and their reasons for supporting him are social, which aren't as effective as ours.  Think about it: An undecided Iowan gets a letter explaining that Bush must be supported to fight the hijacking of our culture by homosecksuals and to stem the tide of murder caused by morning-after pills.  The letter ads that Bush can be counted on to add more Scalias and white Thomases to the Supreme Court.
