    At least to the extent that actually governing leaves him time to be in campaign mode.  Running a country is a demanding job, and the President's part in that doesn't leave a lot of time.

    He should also be keeping some of his OFA staff on board, and keeping the base mobilized.

    Imagine: the Democratic Party as a mass-based organization out to make campaign promises come true.

        Purpose. Involvement. Inclusion.

        I ♥ President Obama. ~ Yes, we did. Again.
        NOW: Hands off SocSec, Medicare and Medicaid. NO Grand Bargain.
        Rich pay a bit more. DoD take a bit less. End war on Afghanistan sooner.

        •  Agree, an energized POTUS is bankable (0+ / 0-)

          Yep, exactly right, POTUS needs to use his pulpit to communicate the purpose, to show the opportunity for involvement and the urgency for people to support the policies and proponents with $$$$ and political actions.....well that's a POTUS that will get my $$$ and my time.
