Inequality as political gambit

Megan McArdle's argument that inequality is a "loser for Democrats" is worth your time, if you did not already click through on Instapundit. She argues that inequality is the most extreme in districts that are already controlled by the Democrats, and that class warfare whining will not resonate much elsewhere. I agree, and would add that unemployment is higher in "blue" states.

That said, what may be a losing strategy in the mid-term elections may turn in to a winner in the presidential race in 2016 if the GOP does not take its obligation as the defender of innovation in the private sector seriously.
