Homeowners haven't shown passion for tax planm Sunday, April 03, 2005
One of my favorite rules in politics comes from Senate GOP political guru Mike Long:
'If you take the folks who are mildly for your candidate, and give me a smaller number that are passionate for my candidate or issue, I will beat you every time. Because passionate people show up, they work and they vote. Folks who don't have a compelling reason to vote, often don't.'
Long's 'passion wins' theory seemed particularly appropriate to me after listening to Gov. Ed Rendell stump for his property tax reduction plan Thursday night.
See the rest of his remarks in the comments.
