Dems come a courtin'

US News and World Report has an interesting piece on how the Democrats are trying to court Catholics for 2008. Since for all practical purposes Catholics were the swing voters in 2004 (toward Bush) and 2006 (toward the Democratic Congress), everyone realizes that we are the people to have in your camp. Since Catholics account for 20 percent of voting Americans, winning big with us means winning big.

So expect a lot about abortion and gay marriage in the next 18 months from the Republicans, and a lot about health care, the war, and poverty from the Dems. (And probably less from them about abortion, although if I was a Dem seeking Catholic votes, I'd ask anyone who voted for the GOP because of abortion to show me what they'd actually gotten for it!)

A president who may have halted our nation's assent towards socialism (which is what the leads Dems are--socialists).
