Could Obama be thinking of one-term and done?

A couple of days ago, a political consultant was talking to me over drinks and I heard him muse that maybe President Obama might be thinking a “one-term and done” strategy. Instead of trying to focus on the next election, as the next part of his Presidency will be, maybe the idea would be to announce – in the coming weeks – that he is not going to run for re-election.

Should the Democratic Primary Race drag on?

All the pundits put their own spin on the Democratic Primary, and I have my own. I have been a supporter of whomever I think can bring about positive change in America’s Future, and my own naval gazing brought about my decision of Senator Obama from a number of paths. But, has the continuing primary battles negatively impacted the potential for the Democrats to take back the White House? I think not, and here is why. Continue reading

Chelsea is a woman of class…and style…

As a surrogate, Chelsea Clinton is a powerful advocate for her Mom and the vision her mother holds for America. Let this powerful woman support her Mom, as wives and husbands have helped other their family in the past. Continue reading

Dear Chelsea, I am sorry it has been a while…

I want a President who speaks—honestly—to what is best in us as citizens. We can be a stupid bunch, but we are not fools. Dishonest, sophist language—moral language used cynically—will lead us to use moral language cynically. Moral language used honestly, if it reaches just 5% of the population—moral demands on us to organize, empathize, and consider the public good, not just our own good, when making political decisions. Over time, character will out—ours and a candidate’s, and we need someone whose character is not up for grabs. Continue reading

Wow – JK stands his ground and stays above the fray

Well, I am catching up on This Week with George Stephanopoulos and watched as he interviewed JK. And, for a man who has many ways of looking at an issue and trying to be very professorial, he did amazingly well … Continue reading

Obama’s success a combination of factors…

Last night is a reflection the Obama message and their field organization, coupled with the weather (what if it had been warmer and the senior citizens came out in even greater numbers), coupled with the “second choice” option, coupled with the distribution of the youth vote across Iowa (instead of centered at their institutions), I think we might have had a different outcome last night. Continue reading

Which horse am I supporting? None of the Above…yet.

I will support whomever becomes the presumptive Democratic nominee since I am so tired of a Republican Administration and want to change the direction of our future. So no matter who wins the Democratic nomination, I will more than likely vote Democratic….unless one thing occurs…Mayor Mike Bloomberg gets in the race, Continue reading

Impressed by the Hillary/Obama fundraising totals? I’m not…yet.

So, come October 15th – when the numbers come out from the campaigns, I am going to take a look at the CODC for the campaigns. And then I will see who really is generating “grassroots” support. The challenge is making an efficient “machine” – and maybe Hillary has built it. Or maybe it has been goosed. Who knows. Continue reading

Making the Grade: HillaryClinton.com

At first blush, Hillary’s site kind of looks like a simple re-templating of her Senate site – maintaining the some of the lighter blues of her past campaign site – and adding the requisite navy blues and red necessary for a “presidential” site. Upon the launch, one of the major colors that you saw was the color pink – look at the videos during the initial announcement launch – and watch as the candidate changes the color of her outfits from a purely pink then adding the blues of the jacket, to the total blue suit outfit – all while still being in front of the homestead looking room. Funny thing – when I first saw the launch, especially with the new catch phrase, “Let the Conversation Begin”, I knew Peter Daou had to navigate the Communications Team to coordinate that one.
