At last, someone has found the best strategy for @TheDemocrats

Examining the utterly brutal numbers (PDF) for the Democrats in a poll conducted jointly by The Wall St. Journal and NBC, David Freddoso offered this advice:

So anyway, the ideal campaign for Democrats would send President Obama to Hawaii for a few months, run ads against the health care law they all voted for (they’re already all over this one), send Bill Clinton out to stump in as many races as possible, and hope for the best.

I’d accuse David of concern-trolling, but he’s too nice  guy for that.  Me, on the other hand…

Still don’t get why Bill Clinton is so popular, though.

    What do you think the purpose of Hildebeast going off the radar for four years is for? She has been distancing herself from the Dem policies from the last 8 years. Technically she was in it for 4 years, but she can campaign on having quit from differences of opinion/philosophy. Not to mention that with absolutely no one else for a dem candidate, all the unsettles dems will come back to the fold when Hillary ‘reluctantly’ agrees to run in 10 months or so. They’ll be so happy to have a viable candidate, they will forgive dems everything for Hillary’s ‘new hope and real change’ message.

    Bill is so popular because he was the only modern dem President that has a positively spinnable term. Carter? Epic fail. Obama? Beyond the pale fail. LBJ, clearly a heavy racist. He commonly used the term nigger in its ugliest connotation. Kennedy, very popular, but wholly lacking in any accomplishments. His greatest achievement? Diffusing the Cuban missile crisis which he is fully responsible for causing. Bill is popular because he is personable and is the only successful Dem in the modern era…

    Easy; 8 years of peace & prosperity, especially compared to the last 14.

    Ya gotta remember Bill was lucky enough to enjoy two full terms right after the fall of the Soviet Union, but just before 9/11. Add to that the (GOP-inspired) balanced budget, and it’s easy to get nostalgic.

    Yeah, the Unabanger is real personable. Just ask Monica.

    Clinton is popular for the same reason Charlie Sheen is. He’s a male whore who gets away with it like most guys would like to.

    Obama tells an Hispanic man who makes $36,000 a year he may have to give up his cable TV and internet to pay for his Obamacare, but has no problem bailing out the Congressional aides with a subsidy because at $75,000 a year they can not afford it??? And guys like Rush, Sean, and Savage do not comment on this? Can’t believe Rush did not connect the dots being he brought up the Hispanic mans’ plight in the first case…
