  •  The Winning Formula: (3+ / 0-)

    Idealism balanced with pragmatism -- Obama's formula for both winning elections and governing.  It's eminently sensible and it appeals to young voters because it rejects "go-it-alone" politics associated with the Bush years and asks them to do their part in achieving the political goals of our current president.

    The candidate who adopts balanced pragmatism with an appeal for help from citizens will plug into their nascent American civic commitment.

    Remember -- the Millennials are eating this style of political strategy up, and are the ones who will keep Democrats in office in the years to come.
