Here’s an excerpt from David Brooks’ NYT op-ed today. He was talking about Obama’s campaign looking to go on the attack:
In short, a candidate should never betray the core theory of his campaign, or head down a road that leads to that betrayal. Barack Obama doesn’t have an impressive record of experience or a unique policy profile. New politics is all he’s got. He loses that, and he loses everything. Every day that he looks conventional is a bad day for him.
Uh, yeah, this applies to us.
Never betray your core. If you lose it, you lose everything.
Every day you look conventional is a bad day.
