I liked this post over at StoutDemBlog. Don’t focus on the past, either those 30-year-old military records or even what things were like 4 years ago:
The question both of those remaining undecided voters out there want answered is “With which President will I be better off four years from now?” Talk to them about the FUTURE. Tell them who’ll do more to reduce the deficit, support the starving schools, cut the high price of prescription drugs, or encourage more jobs here instead of India…..
To win, we have to choose our own battlefield. We can triumph if we offer those undecided voters something they want and need, but can’t get elsewhere. Don’t be distracted arguing about which person was bad long ago, or who’s lying about what. Just tell them we can make a better world for them and their children and grandchildren, it they’ll just vote for HOPE.
