How Obama can win: Register new voters, expanding the electorate. Focus on Michigan’s No. 1 issue: an economy that has lost 128,000 motor vehicle and automotive parts jobs in the past 12 months. Galvanize predominantly male, unionized workers by promising green-color jobs and reviving the auto industry with tech-driven, energy-efficient cars produced in the USA. Employ Hillary Clinton to campaign harder and more frequently to counter the Republicans’ strategic use of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
