    Not Obama, Plouffe, Axelrod, etc.? They know how to do this.

    •  but they only work for Obama (0+ / 0-)

      Minerva and you are both right, but .... the Dem off-year campaigns usually suck ... esp in years w/o Howard Dean around.

      I would love to see the Obama campaign team play a major role in 2014 ... but will they?

        The only official public job I see him holding after the presidency is on SCOTUS, and you don't exactly campaign for that, at least in the traditional sense. Until Dems pick our next nominee, he's the leader of the party and has to do all that he can to help it win in 2014 and beyond. He's proven that he can do that. He needs to help us take back the house. His legacy also depends on it.

          a lot of things that make sense to me Democrats don't do.

            his seeming need to make nice to, get the approval of and not too strenuously fight or beat up on his political and the country's actual enemies, the GOP.
