How Hillary Can Win


One

Smile — even when you say something serious. Smile before and after.

Two

Do not refer to Trump by name.

Three

Call him “My opponent” and always smile after you say it.

Four

Asked to say why you no longer call him by name say you have a name for him but it is not fit for, um, general use. Maybe in the debate.

Five

This should become a social media sensation.

Six

If it does become a sensation, say “I am sure there are lots of candidates for the right name.”

Seven

This campaign has been about name-calling. I am about winning. And being the President of everyone.

Eight

Get some of the folk who did stuff for Barack to do the same for you.

Nine

Say you would welcome Ivanka into your administration.

Ten

Visit the Pettus Bridge in Selma with John Lewis. Very low key.

Eleven

Visit Bush 1.

Twelve

Meet with Bernie and Elizabeth and three supportive billionaires in Zucotti Park and propose a study of Universal Basic Income to replace most entitlements. A five year investigation with the goal of major reform. Note that UBI has support on all sides. (Option — Drop some Wall Street speech texts.)

Thirteen

When you are ahead in the polls, smile. Nod. Say we intend to win. No further comment. No grandstanding. When behind say, Who says? (Smile either way)

Fourteen

At debate note that he (no name, remember) was called a fraud by Mitt. Why?

Fifteen

At the debate, ask why he insulted John McCain. Why? (Smile)

Sixteen

At the debate, say you assume Lester will ask him about his tax returns.

Seventeen

At the debate, ask him about his record of hiring.

Eighteen

Hold a press conference at the gate of his palatial Florida estate.

Nineteen

Add to the name of your campaign to STRONGER TOGETHER — A BETTER WAY

Twenty

Put kids in your ads talking directly to voters.

Standard
