Democrats are taking nothing for granted as they gear up for the November elections. Presenting a clear message is vital. Trump’s was Make America Great Again and it worked. So what is both inspiring and vague enough to win over people who voted for Obama and then for Trump? Is the conventional wisdom of pragmatic centrism the way to go this year? According to The Hill’s congressional reporter Mike Lillis, the process of messaging is many faceted and there is so much at stake. Campaigns are pushed and pulled at both the national and local levels, and between the old Hillary wing and the rising insurgents. Neither too much vagueness nor specificity. An interesting and important process.
