Dear Kerry Campaign,

Something I’ve been saying: People are scared and they want leaders who will protect them. Kerry needs to tell the public how he is better at protecting them against terrorists than Bush is. He needs to make a convincing case. That is what the public wants to know. That is the ONLY question today. The Republicans know this.

Update – Maybe I’m completely wrong. Also here, “Mr. Clinton … told Mr. Kerry that he should … focus … on drawing contrasts with President Bush on job creation and health care policies…”

Also from that last reference –

“Among the better-known former Clinton aides who are expected to play an increasingly prominent role are James Carville, Paul Begala and Stanley Greenberg, campaign aides said.”

I’m happier now.

Update – But maybe I was right in the first place. This guy is saying what I was saying. “In fact, it’s a no-brainer: somehow Kerry has to convince people that he can be trusted with national security and Bush can’t — and if he doesn’t, he’s going to lose.”
