Read this, it's important! It's about the 2002 election and Homeland security, and how an issue the White House initially didn't give a crap about became the road to vitory for the GOP.

the Department of Homeland Security was first proposed by Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman and rejected by the White House. So how did the GOP adopt the idea as its own and then use it against Democrats? "Only in Washington," sighs Louisiana Sen. John Breaux, "could someone like the president be dragged to an issue kicking and screaming and then become the father of it, using it against those who first proposed it."
