I could not agree more. If the Dems were smart, they would have made the last election about education and health care (Howard Dean's biggest strengths, btw). Instead, they chose to attack Bush on the war which was his easiest position to defend.
For America to compete in a global economy, they either have to make things cheaper or smarter than everybody else. There isn't much standard of living in cheaper.
