  •  Make sure the folks on the Sunday shows are better (none)
    than Rohm Emanuel was on the week before last with Tim Russert's Meet the Press.   It was embarrassing, he was acting like Kerry when he was trying to remember what he was suppose to say that day....

    Iraq is blowing up and this guy can't give a straight answer about weather "knowing what you know now, would you have voted for the war"?  what exactly is hard about that question.  He ran around like a blob of mercury.

    Get somebody who has a clue.

    The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are! (who?)

    •  TIM DID SOMETHING I NEVER SAW BEFORE (none)
      He gave Rahma blind quote, and asked him if he agreed.  Has he done that with a repub before?  But you are correct-he sucked.
    •  Yes Get Stronger Advocates on TV New Programs (none)
      Get people like
      Barbara Boxer
      Harry Reid
      John Kerry
      Al Gore
      Howard Dean
      Wes Clark

      People with experience and toughness and knowledge to go on this shows and speak with conviction, confidence and preparation.
      Kerry really has been tested by fire and he should do well defending and articulating Democratic positions. Plus he is now easily recognized and has a core of support of all those millions who voted for him. Get someone on these programs who is at least known and articulate and tough.

      •  MTP Sunday Jan 30th has Kerry (none)
        On for the hour. Commenting on Rice, Elections, etc.
        •  Kerry on MTP (none)
          I'm less than thrilled about seeing Kerry on Meet the Press. He's far too verbose, unclear, and his statements are too windy for him to be an effective Democratic statesman, in my opinion. I'd rather have someone like Wes Clark, Howard Dean, or Barack Obama.

          I wouldn't be surprised to see Russert kick Kerry's ass like he did w/ Emanuel.

          •  I doubt that will happen. (none)
            Tim Russert does not even begin to be bright enough to kick Kerry's ass verbally.
            •  I think what he was worried about (none)
              Is that Kerry would kick his own ass, so to speak.  The man has a tendency to sound like exactly the kind of waffling political windbag the Republicans painted him as.  Russert doesn't need to do much clever, just ask a question that Kerry doesn't want to answer clearly and let him do the rest.
            •  But Kerry learned a lot (none)
              Watch the debates again and Kerry's interviews a few months prior the election, he became less verbose, more succinct and he has been tested by fire.
              Kerry learned a lot from this campaign and become more proficient in the these scenarios by October.
      •  Don't bother with Kerry... (none)
        The rest of the list is good.

        In Britain they admit to having royalty. In the United States we pretend we don't have any, and then we elect them president.
