10 week to-do list: Your ideas for Obama, Republicans – CNN.com:


(CNN) — Strategists on both sides of the political aisle weighed in this week on what President Obama and Republicans must do before the November midterms to give their parties a boost.

For President Obama:

  1. Govern from the center
  2. Tout the administration’s accomplishments
  3. Rise above the partisan bickering
  4. Shake up the staff
  5. Stay out of local issues

For Republicans:

  1. Steer clear of the far right commentators
  2. Keep religion out of politics
  3. Be conservative, but be bipartisan
  4. Represent your constituents, not your party’s agenda
  5. Tell the voters what will be different if Republicans take power

10 week to-do list: Your ideas for Obama, Republicans

I think that President Obama is already governing from the center – much to the frustration of the Democrats. He has lost 18 months in his forlorn quest for bipartisanship. For the good of the party, he needs to take a step to the left.

He also needs to learn how to better manage the “political bickering” before attempting another intervention, and it is only a matter of time before he will have to intervene again.

Other than that, I strongly endorse these ideas!
