Democratic Congress Must be a Priority
online.wsj.com — In a n article in the Wall Street Journal by reporters Laura Meckler and Peter Nicholas, Campaign for America's Future's co-director Roger Hickey was quoted as encouraging a campaign strategy that makes winning back the House and keeping the Senate a priority for Democrats and for the President. Hickey said it will be all but impossible for Mr. Obama to accomplish his goals in a second term if he doesn’t have a Democratic Congress.
“He has a rap he uses all the time on the campaign trail about this being the election that will break the stalemate in Washington. But when you look at it, it sounds like he’s just talking about getting him re-elected,” Mr. Hickey said. The better course, he said, would be for Mr. Obama to tell voters: “Send me a Congress that can do the big things that need to be done.”
