    Best move, it seems to me, is to combine forces.  Let the President plan his campaign appearances around swing Congressional districts where he is popular, and call on the electorate to bring "our team" to Congress.

    In many cases, this'll mean taking time to go where he's needed anyway. There are plenty of districts in FL, OH, PA, MO, NV where his appearance could get a new Democrat elected.  But it would also mean going to some districts (CO-3 and 4, NM-2, several in CA and upstate NY) where he's got the state but needs Republican-held districts to flip to get a legislative partner in 2013.  There may also be some states where he's losing but a particular district would benefit from his appearance (maybe in Georgia, North Dakota or Arizona...these are trickier, since a state that even now intends to vote for Mittens may hate Obama so much that an appearance there might actually hurt the downballot).
