Losing sides always have the worst slogans, because slogans generally suck and people make fun of them. What was Romney's slogan? What was McCain's?

/I think they matter. Even the effective ones do get made fun of, but just capturing your attention is half the battle.

Didn't Chris Christe use that one?

Did he, or was that a Bridgegate joke?

I got a real winner, but I wouldn't dare type it on my work counsel. It involves a type of free government robot. I'll let your mind wonder.

"Believe in America"

America? I don't think it exists. /ROUS - http://princessbride.wikia.com/wiki/R.O.U.S.

Obama's was a simple "Forward" - which I actually think is one of the better ones (doesn't that say something). Dead simple.

Slogans are for winning in the margins, IMO.

On slogans, some of the responses to this tweet were gold.

My favorite being:

Mine personally would be: "Home safe. Good night."

Which with the right framing kinda works.

Dems should just get Amy McGrath and her team to work on branding. Holy shit, that's a good campaign video.

That was really good, but too long form methinks to be truly effective, methinks. I hope she has a 30 second version that hits all the important notes.

I'd support this platform. 

Although a sub-clause reaffirming the importance of soy sauce would be required.

 They don't matter in the sense that they don't effect the content of the platform, but in terms of PR they can be huge. Yes We Can. Hope and Change, Make America Great Again, etc, all captured a segment of the population's attention and imagination. As incompetent as Trump is, he understands the importance of branding. It's YUGE. 

Those are all presidential campaigns.  They can be useful in those cases - and in general it's important for a presidential candidate to have a bumper sticker message - but for all of (one party of) Congress?  Highly skeptical it's ever made a significant difference.

Solid point. I'll have to mull that one over.

If elected, I'll lower the boiling temperature of water, saving billions and the environment at the same time.

I don't believe in water having a boiling temperature.  Sounds like a Chinese conspiracy.
