...though I do like your interpretation.

That quote has been used so often on DU as a way of saying people won't support someone because he/she is a "republican lite."

But that leads us to the question, "what constitutes a Republican policy?"

... if we lay out a few and then show that people supported it, do we then concede it isn't a republican policy or muddy the waters further by assuming the people have been fooled or convinced by more colorful framing?
