The programs they campaigned on will NOT be the ones they try to implement in the next session of Congress.
"Much like this advertising scam, the 1992 and 2006 political campaigns had three things in common:
* They were hugely successful in garnering enough votes to assure victory
* They offered promises that weren't remotely meant to be kept
* Their pledges would be rescinded before those newly elected would take office.
Surprisingly, the Democrats of 2006 were faster in retracting their campaign promises than Clinton. He at least waited a few weeks to tell the seemingly stunned populace that 'suddenly' exploding budget deficits made tax cuts unfeasible, setting up the perfect ruse to raise them. By contrast, in 2006, the Democrats only waited nine days to betray their supporters."
