    use a powerful counter-punch. Because "explaining" suggests that the opponent might have a point.

    Offense is the best defense. And explaining how your policies will work to end the Iraq war, provide affordable healthcare, fix the economic disaster and mortgage mess, and basically address all the problems created by Bush and his biggest ally, McCain.

    People won't be voting on abstract things this time -- because they will be PERSONALLY HURTING. It's the economy "stupid"...yet again.

    When people are losing their jobs and homes and can't afford to drive their cars...they'll want someone who's got plans other than give more money to oil companies...and trust the market on healthcare...

    When a government violates the unalienable rights of the people, it loses its legitimacy.

      The difference between Obama's explaining and other Dem explaining is that he explain why GOP questions are silly and then direct to the real issues (the mess is caused by Bush co and how to fix it). This is exactly what a professor does in college.

      Whereas, other Dems might simply explain why they are not what the GOP accuse them (e.g., no we are not cut and run, etc...)

      It takes Obama to do what is right.
