The Democratic National Committee this morning released this clip of the president rallying the troops, if rather coolly, for 2010. Obama's express goal: "reconnecting" with the voters who voted for the first time in 2008, but who may not plan to vote in the lower-profile Congressional elections this year.
Obama speaks with unusual demographic frankness about his coalition in his appeal to "young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again."
What?? He only wants these people to help him out? What's he got against Americans of the Asian, European, or male persuasion? By the way, this is the most post-racial President ever. Forgot that little detail.
There's my two cents.
