    run on strength, not apologies.  Too many feel right now they have to play defensive because the President's approval is low, the overall ACA approval is low, and because the economy is still struggling.

    But the truth is that they should be bold and proactive - even in republican strongholds.  Reagan won reelection not by attacking but by proclaiming strength (he also attacked, it is true).  Standing up and saying 'I am not really as bad as most democrats' is a terrible strategy:  it won't help endear independents or republicans, and it won't draw democrats to the polls.

    Confidence wins elections.  Confidence and results.  But even without results, confidence alone is better than apology.
