How do I approach contract negotiation without making things really tense?

What are some common "win-win-style" tactics or phrases used during contract negotiation to get portions changed/removed? From time to time I need to write or talk about those issues without escalating any tensions.

Typically this happens with boilerplate contracts that come across my desk, with TONS of stuff in there that makes me uncomfortable. I usually don't feel like it really reflects my client's (comparatively optimistic) attitude toward the project. But I don't want to seem like the one weirdo who needs the entire contract rewritten his way.
