Obama campaign strategists, listen up. You have the opportunity of a lifetime. You have an almost Cosby-created candidate with a liberated constituency in a major political party, which should be the party to win with a platform of change from almost the worst setback militarily, economically, socially, politically and internationally in the history of the U.S. The presidency is yours to lose.

Your constituency has given you a technological, monetary and recruiting advantage. They could also be an asset in your headquarters. All you have to do is to beef up your marketable platform with substantive detailed policies and let our candidate focus on message, selling it with conviction. The beefing up can be accomplished using focus groups on each of the topics using Democrat experts and constituency members. The failure to go to Iowa and New Orleans was stupid if you want to show a connection to the common man. I have met many of the young constituents and they are intelligent, motivated and quite capable of being utilized in decision making of the movement. I'm suggesting your candidate could keep supplementing his message with your substantive data. He should become a more passionate, stronger leader with this modification of resources.

Playing defense and responding to negatives sucks all the positive energy, which could be utilized for a positive offensive campaign. You have the presidency laid before you. Get out and take it in a manner that illustrates how you would address the issues of your platform if you win the election. While campaigning is educating and marketing, marketing is what is needed most. Now is the time. You have the ball, Shoot it! The presidency is yours if you passionately show you can do the job!
