President Bush has remained quiet since leaving office, but Democrats may not let him depart so easily. According to Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), who heads the Democrats' campaign committee in the House, the party plans to feature the previous administration front and center in an effort win over voters. "The Republican Party in Washington today is no different than the Republican Party that ran the Congress before," Van Hollen told Talking Points Memo. Democrats are hoping that the economy will be on the upswing by the midterm election, allowing them to use the current GOP obstructionism against them to show that they didn't participate in the turnaround. "The big question will be who was on your side during this very difficult period of time," he said.
