2. Well there goes 2006...
This is the kind of issue that will lead to another democratic loss in 2006 and 2008.

Generally speaking, americans like being free. They see the democrats as trying to eliminate those freedoms. And they are right in this case. It started with federal buildings, then spread to other buildings, then restauraunts and bars, now they are eliminating smoking outside. Next will be in homes, and then finally an all out ban. They are not being reasonable, in the same way the NRA is unreasonable. They will not stop until smoking is illegal and the freedom to smoke is eliminated completely. Just like the NRA will not stop until all gun control is eliminated. There is no "acceptable" or "reasonable" level of gun control.

Colorado is also passing a statewide smoking ban right now. The article is in the Denver post this morning.

I think the hatred for smokers has clouded the democrats judgment on what is fair and reasonably free.
