Excerpt:Â As the pre-pre-campaign campaigning winds down to caucus crunches and early primaries, the critical campaign issues should finally get real attention. Campaign managers, consultants and the proliferation of frothing pundits have missed the boat.
The views of the American citizens matter, and those concerns are forcing their way to the surface. Candidates who avoid them will fail. Being a footnote in history isn't on their agenda.
The problem is, the meat and potatoes issues concerning Americans today, aren't on their agenda either.
They'll soon face the reality that the American people will elect our next president. Their concerns need the attention â€“ not those of academic utopians, gutter-mentality politicians pandering to the lowest denominator, and certainly not one-world internationalists who tout the key to the future of mankind.
