More Advice For Obama

My contribution to the aforementioned New Republic colloquoy on Obama’s general election strategy is now up on their site, along with Bill Galston’s, and another by Jon Chait. (Others will eventually be published as well).
Aside from agreeing with Galston’s assessment, my piece focuses on three issues: (1) how Obama can win the war of “meta-message” with McCain; (2) what Obama needs to do to beef up his credibility on national security; and (3) why Obama should ignore the occasional mockery of bored and cynical pundits and make full, abundant use of his rhetorical skills, especially during his crucial convention acceptance speech.
