DEMS STRIKE OUT I don't know enough about Sen. Harry Reid to have formed an opinion of him. But his remarks tonight were awful.

Six paragraphs of biography? A "Marshall Plan for America"?

And then he followed with a litany of generic Democratic talking points.

Look: Everyone knows that Democrats favor, "Good, new jobs. World-class education. Affordable health care." How about telling Americans something they don't already know?

Spend a couple minutes exposing the social security privitization scam. Focus the nation's attention on the administration's profligate spending. Mention Osama Bin Laden.

But don't just sit there stringing together a bunch of stock phrases.

P.S. Pelosi was better, but not much. Can't we get Eliot Spitzer in front of the cameras? Barack Obama?
