I agree about the Reaganesque optimism. Note though that it's important to frame the debate on your own terms, not those of your opponents. I would argue for positive language, not necessarily 'Progressive' language in the generally accepted sense. "We will be more socialist than the socialists" doesn't convince. At the last election the immigration debate suffered from being couched in the terms of the liberal left for whom any restriction on immigration is racist - "It's Not Racist to Set Limits" merely puts the idea in people's heads that it _is_ racist, or at least that someone thinks so. Much better is a positive message, eg "We will admit new immigrants on merit".
