Where is the DNC’s Don Draper?
Politics has always been a big part of our kitchen table. That conversation is a bit escalated these days. What we are all dismayed at is the lack of leadership from the DNC. Why are they not providing a message that is consistent and on point with compelling content?
You don’t have to look farther than Twitter to see some of the most talented people discussing their frustration such as Rob Reiner, Bette Midler, Rosie O’Donnell and those are household names. Why isn’t the DNC rounding up the best and the brightest in brand building to create a consistent message online, in print and on TV that appeals to vast audiences particularly the youth who needs to get out and vote?
I don’t want to see the Democrats squabbling about the nuances of their personal healthcare strategies if they become President. The reality is most of them have the same message although some are farther left than others but as Democrats they are consistent about what they stand for. There are plenty of insanely creative smart people who can take those messages and roll out a campaign that is positive even in the diversity of the Democrats running for the office of President.
Change must happen. One of the great things about the way we elect our officials is the running of a campaign. It is not so much about the message but the management of the campaign which includes targeting the right voters. There was a too long clip that was done pulling out pieces of the Mueller Report and reading it by a variety of movie stars. Why haven’t people pulled 15 second clips off of this and put it on the DNC and every Senator’s website to grab and push out so more and more people can see it. Where are the posts, the blogs the Instagrams that combat the constant lies that are being espoused from Trump? Control the message by creating content that spurs people to pay attention to the reality of where are country is and vote. The message today should be quite clear when it comes to violence and guns but the DNC has none.
If you go to the DNC site there is nothing that grabs me. Just a variety of pictures, some written words defining the party and a desire for cash to support the “grassroots” movement. No videos and nothing compelling. Why can’t the DNC be more compelling? They send emails that there have been shootings, sign this petition to help us pass bills, then push this button and give us money. That is not a message, that is not compelling me to get involved, it just does nothing but frustrate every one more.
Why can’t the DNC hire a Don Draper?
