Nearly every democrat at the convention has uttered the words: "Do you want more of the same?"
That's fine if people equate Bush to McCain. What if they don't? McCain did vote with Bush 95% of the time and you'd think that would be the end of the story. But McCain's making new promises, granted they're campaign promises.
Let's not forget, McCain's a POW. Bush is not. McCain has more houses than Bush. But they both vacation at ranches.
McCain has celebrity support like Yankee Daddy (?). Bush has support of celebrities like Britney Spears. McCain's wife is a beer heiress. Bush's wife is a former librarian.
McCain does believe in global warming. Not sure if he's inclined to do anything about it. Bush doesn't believe in global warming.
So far, people don't seem to be connecting the "more of the same" dots. Voting for Bush 95% of the time is not setting off any warning bells.
