Over the course of the election, I've been in periodic contact with one of the people running the Obama campaign. It started right before the debate between Senators Obama and Clinton in Hollywood and continued through the Rev. Wright ordeal and to the present. Having said that, in hindsight I would say that I've committed the folly of so many other pundits, activist and advocates for Sen. Obama's campaign... aggrandizement of my own political astuteness. I like to think of it as me being gifted in the art of political strategy, but even without the benefit of my untested and unproven skill as the democratic answer to Karl Rove, Obama seems to come out on top.
Now, does this mean that I will stop... NO WAY! In fact, not only will I stop. I'm going to post my advice to the Obama campaign on this blog and invite you to do the same. Of course, we'd much rather be paid consultants, but what can you do.
Let me know what you think.
