    If Americans think that the Republicans are going to save them from death panels, the Republicans win.

    If Americans think that the Republicans will threaten them with losing insurance that they are now allowed to keep, the Democrats win.

    The good news: the truth is on the side of the second argument.

    The bad news: the American people seem to believe the first argument.

    What are the Democrats going to do differently in the next six weeks--that they haven't done in the last six months--to change this dynamic?

    (Technocrats never seem to understand that even good policies don't sell themselves.)
