Republican Elephant: My 2010 campaign is simple: Washington is broken. It resonates!
We can see that the Karl Rove and Lee Atwater school of political winning (you only need 50% plus one) at any cost is still working.
Divide and conquer worked in ancient times, and we still fall for it.
Pick a wedge, any wedge, and you can split your opponents into two camps, and go happily about raiding the treasury unhindered.
And of course, the function of a politician is to get (re-)elected.
