1. Clarity

Clarity is achieved in American politics when messengers in various milieus are all echoing the same point: tv, government, TALK RADIO, newspapers and magazines, and the internet.

The Republicans have it down to a science.

One of the advantages they're reaping from Benghazi is it prevents Democrats from talking about the fiscal cliff. We're on the defensive. They're creating the narrative, the story, and when we get the microphone we have to respond to what they say, not talk about what we want to say.

It's encouraging to see Obama trying to use his base for a megaphone, but he's got a long way to go to get the kind of performance that will yield political clout comparable to what the Republican party achieves with their noise machine.
