How the president looks on Election
Day will depend in part on his ability to fire up the constituencies
Obama's message is essentially apocalyptic, although it's delivered in his customary no-drama way.
Something like: "You're right, things aren't as great as we'd like. But just imagine the disaster if the
Republicans take control of Capitol Hill."
With African Americans, his appeal has been simpler and more direct: "I need you."
The response he gets from black voters may determine the outcome of some of November's key races.
Wouldn't it be odd if Obama had to ask the Clintons to help him out with Black voters?
