    belittling Obama as an individual and belittling those who voted for him.
    I began with another candidate and really thought about this election. I was impressed that Obama performed well under pressure and met every test and set a positive tone. He's been pounded on by McCain, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton. The MSM has let HRC move the goalposts.

    Right now Obama has to seize the initiative. They are trying to goad him again and he is very restricted because an angry man of color is so threatening. But he has to get control of the narrative.

      was his demonstration of leadership and looking ahead towards the massive voter registration and participation drives which he is planning for this summer.  Think Freedom Summer sans the terrorists (KKK) and extended throughout the country.

      Now, I think it's kind of on the Democratic party leadership to confront the Clintons.  They really are trashing the party on their way out the door and it's beyond damaging and unseemly.

      But I'm in total agreement that it is going to be crucial that Obama remain on message and not get tempted into getting into it with the Clintons again.

      I don't agree with his policies or his poltical stance.
