Obama's Bittergate remark -- which I broke and which is revisited in David Plouffe's new book -- was and still is one of the biggest stories of that historic presidential run. It is also still one of the least understood. Here's the untold story behind it.
I have not seen much evidence of Obama being in touch with small-town Kentucky, but after reading David Plouffe's new book, The Audacity to Win, I have become convinced that he knows what it takes to run a business.
Obama is being described as unelectable, as incapable of connecting with working class voters, and as someone who might be uncomfortable with patriotism. Obama is being defined by others. It's time for him to do the defining.
