In the hopes that this comment is published and doesn't disappear into the ozone as have some other recent pearls of wisdom from me, I make this brief observation:
One of the reasons that the Democrats succeeded so well in 2008 was their effort to build voter and candidate interest from the grassroots up. The Republicans, even more lost in the wilderness than they were on November 5, 2008, are trying to dictate from the top down.
Your other comment is posted now -
And you're right - they are trying. At the moment, I don't know which would be worse; Gingrich being right or Sarah Palin. We'll see.

There is plenty of blame to go around on this one, and trotting out the old Bush vs. Obama comparo is a waste of time.
The first culprit is a succession of administrations dating back decades that have allowed the America public health apparatus to go to hell.
The second is that both the Bush and Obama administrations sent mixed signals in the face of possible pandemics.
The third and the biggest culprit is a pharmaceutical industry that makes obscene profits (some of which they do pour back into R&D) allowing every American adult male's penis to stand proudly at attention on cue but just can't get the flu vaccine thing right.
