If I *had* to be a Democratic strategist, this is THE issue I would use to get back into the mainstream.
If I had to be a Democratic strategist, I'd exploit this as a wedge issue to split the Republicans apart, while resting comfortably in the knowledge that very few Dems are threatened by the issue, no matter which way it breaks.
I might even hire a few people to stir things up on conservative websites and talk radio stations. But that's just me.
No need to hire anybody to stir things up. After Perot many of us saw the error of our ways and have worked to put the GOP at the helm but we have been deceived since and are more disheartened as time goes by. What is wrong with Nationalism? That is all many of us are asking. Without nationalism we have no nation. Is that what we as a government desire? It is suicide to not pursue the right course.
You say the Dems are not interested, in what, borders, language, culture? I think you are mistaken because if they were not we would either have Al Gore or John Kerry as our President because without the votes from Democrats the GOP can not win a national contest. In some states like NH, even the GOP voted for Kerry because of dissatisfaction with GWB. It works both ways. I will stipulate that there is no need to hire folks to stir the pot.
