This is obviously a loaded question, because there are certain issues for which there are two definite sides, and obviously, you can't please everyone, but just the same, I'd be interested in hearing what some of you think is the perfect political platform, one that could effectively guarantee election. For the sake of argument, let's say this is a national election. Also, think about whether or not a person with this platform could actually win the nomination of one of the major parties.

I'm interested to see if there is an agreement on the broad framework for a platform that, with a charismatic, effective politician backing it, could guarantee election.

Martyrdom is the only "perfect" political platform. Say what people like, but never be placed in power so you can never actually screw up. Then die fighting for a universally important cause. Boom, perfect. Except...you're dead. Haha. Says something about politics....
