Contradicting the Last Entry

To contradict the last post (predicting the long term future) as soon as possible, I want to point out that there is a nice opportunity for Kerry in the rising prices of oil. Instead of spending 30 million talking about jobs, Kerry should start talking up the rising price of oil and its affect on the economy. The rising price of oil may be with us through the election and it is something that consumers get excited about. It is also something that was a foreseeable consequence of our involvement in Iraq. Of course, he would have to make the case that Democrats can control this better than Republicans, which may be a problem.
