Default Re: Bloggingheads Assemble! (Jamelle Bouie & Peter Suderman)

If Progressives believe that Obama ratcheting up the rhetoric will get him a second term - God help them. I can't even watch him on TV anymore. If he does make a major speech, I watch the debriefs.

As a conservative, if I were asked to give advise to Democrats, it would be to go bold on gay marriage. Give young people a reason to go out and vote. Make it a seminal issue of their time to create equality. Tell them that if they don't vote and the GOP wins it could be decades before their friends had ALL the freedoms of Americans. How is the GOP going to respond - they would be boxed in. And the more people like Rick Santorum and Bachmann speak, the more young people will be turned off. Gay rights will get a high turnout in the 18-29 (Demo)

It's true that many in the African American community voted against prop 8, but honestly, 95% get their vote to Obama and they are loyal.

Gay rights is the GOP's Achilles' heel.
