The Heartland 527 game.
Gov. Tom Vilsack has been asking fellow Democrats who visit his Heartland PAC Web site to sum up their party’s message in 10 words or less. The goal is to craft a coherent, concise slogan that sticks with voters in November and beyond. Vilsack formed Heartland PAC to raise money and help lay the groundwork for a possible presidential run. (If 10 words don’t work the PAC, which actually is a 527 group, has raised $1.3 million in the past year)
I’m sure some aspiring political strategists out in blogland can think of 10 words that sum up the Democratic Party. Here’s your chance to contribute. Democrats, Republicans and independents are welcome.
I’m taking Mr. Dorman up on his suggestion that we all contribute to Vilsack’s ten words or less project. To make it more fun, at least for me, and to avoid massive vowel mistakes, I’ve made missing letter puzzles out of phrases and their pseudo-authors. Good luck. If you need help, look at the links first and then write for hints, and not to my glitched IE email, but into the comments section.

If y’all are nice and it's required, I’ll post the translated versions tomorrow.
