11. The dems need to campaign hard in 08 that Repukes make america less safe
I agree with you that it's a problem that the republicans were able to make the public think they were strong on homeland security and that democrats were threats to it. Part of the reason for that is that the democrats offered up almost no real defense to issue (that I can remember anyway). In 08 the democrats need to use that strategy against the republicans, and show how the republicans have made America far less safe then the democrats. There's a number of things that they could use against the repukes. Off the top of my head here's a list of things they could use.

-The intelligence community say Iraq has made us less safe from terrorism
-Iraq has become a rallying point for terrorists that they can use to recruit more terrorists
-Many Muslims view Bush's war on terror as a war on Islam instead, which shows that he's making them not trust us
-Republicans posted nuclear weapon blueprints on the Internet, which brings terrorists far closer to getting their hands on nuclear weapons then anything
-Selling our nation's ports to an Arab company that was suspected of having ties to terrorist groups (though I honestly didn't really have a problem with it myself, but a lot of America sure did)

And I'm sure that I'm forgeting a number of other times the republicans have made us less safe.
