Political pundit James Carville has sent out a mass e-mail on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee seeking “the bumper sticker slogan that will carry us through the 2008 elections.”
Carville – lead strategist for Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 presidential campaign – said the slogan will be used on the DSCC’s Web site, on campaign literature and on the “bumpers of jalopies from coast to coast.”
The e-mail to presumed Democratic supporters states: “We need a turn of phrase that really jumps out and tells you right off the bat what this election is all about. In 1992, it was ‘It’s the Economy, Stupid.’ In 2006, Democrats simply said, ‘Had Enough?’
“We got a few ideas … Take a look and then, do us the favor of voting for one of our top picks. But if you got something better, we’ll throw that in the mix too.”
The four bumper sticker slogans offered by the DSCC are:W Is Out - Send the Right Wing With Him No Republicans Left Behind in D.C. What Have Republicans Done for You Lately? 2006 Was Just the Beginning - More Dems in ‘08
Carville opines: “What I look at 2008, I’m telling you that Democrats have almost everything we need to send another wave of Republican Senators out to pasture….
“But we’ve still got to stay sharp. We’ve got to stay ready. We have to constantly remind people of the stakes involved, and the choice they have.
“And that is what this bumper sticker campaign is all about.”
