My letter to Joe Biden.
May 9, 2020
I hope you do not mind me offering some advice but defeating Trump is essential and I am not sure you are up to the job.
Form a Shadow Cabinet Now
This way, the press will go to those you have appointed for comment and each member of your cabinet can attack their counterpart in Trump’s Cabinet as well as Tump. Just imagine if someone like Corey Booker could go after Barr for the Flynn case. Have regular meetings of your cabinet and have your “press secretary” summarized the discussions.
Appoint your Vice President
This way the press will stop wasting time speculating. The VP should be a woman and probably a woman of color. But she must also be an “attack dog” going after Trump, Pence, and their team. This is the only reason I would not pick Michelle Obama. She is too nice.
Hold Weekly Press Briefings
Have virtual press briefings and demonstrate how much more rationally you can deal with issues.
Work on Branding and Positioning
Don’t let Trump own, making the economy better. Release your plan for getting the economy going again. Come up with some key positions of Trump. Paint him as incompetent, uncaring, and corrupt. Form a task forces for all the key issues like health and the economy with key thought leaders like Bill Gates. Get Obama to speak out.
Find Something Important for Bernie
He would not take a position in your cabinet. But he should attend cabinet meetings. Make Warren Secretary of Treasury. Have her explain to everyone how we are going to help the average person.
Please get going. What are you waiting for?
