Gov. Rendell to Obama: Change Your Strategy

Sunday, 21 Feb 2010 11:40 AM


A governor who once led national Democrats say President Barack Obama's White House needs to change its political strategy.

Gov. Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania calls Obama "the best communicator in the history of political campaigning." But Rendell says it turned out that Obama didn't communicate very well in his first year in office — and that Republicans were able to "take the spin" right from the start.

For example, Rendell says Democrats didn't do a good job explaining the stimulus package and thus lost the PR war to the GOP.

Rendell, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, doesn't see a need for a White House shake-up. But he says White House officials "need to take a deep breath, look at what happened and revamp their strategy" — and rely on Obama's skills from there.

Rendell spoke on ABC's "This Week."
