Decipher That Buzzword!

Dear Everyone,

I humbly confess that I have NO idea what the following political buzzwords and catchphrases mean. If anyone would enlighten me, I would be grateful!

"Knowledge economy"

"Value-add/value-added [anything]"

"Compassionate conservatism"

"Neo-conservatism" (how does this differ from the traditional kind?)

"True patient-centered, free market reform" (Sarah Palin)

"Race to the Top"

"Competitiveness in the 21st-century global economy"

If any of you think of any more fuzzy buzzwords, post them here and let us post our theories on what they might mean! (No, I don't trust Wikipedia).
