"Yes, Democrats must do more than that. Obama will have to offer a prescription for the nation’s economic ills. Dalton will have to give us more vision than “great schools and great jobs.”
Um, Gary. All of the rhetoric in the world from Obama (and Dalton, for that matter) will mean squat so long as unemployment/gasoline prices/food prices/business failures/housing forclosures etc. are a huge problem for we, the voters. We've heard just SO many good speeches and presentations on "what we must do" from Obama...and what's been done? Blame the republicans in the House? Blame Bush?
If the economy is still in the tank and if there are a gazillion people unemployed/underemployed and if milk is around $4/gal and gasoline above $3/gal....well, I'm thinkin' all of the suave speeches Obama can make won't help him much. Americans get tired of speeches and fancy politicians. They grow tired of no action and no progress.
Dalton is a Bev Perdue clone and you KNOW the repubs will tie him to her at every opportunity. It won't matter how much he can tell the people of NC what he thinks must be done and how horrible things are because of republicans. Perdue is a dem...she's guv....and Dalton is one of her cronies. He'll run from her, but the republicans won't let him hide.
