Everyone's got some advice for Kerry... 

...and it's all pretty good.

E.J. Dionne says Kerry should conduct a show & tell fight: show that he's a strong leader by taking the fight to Bush while explaining to voters what he's fighting for for them.

Krugman says Kerry should puncture the bubble of Bush's "war leadership" with a combination of hard facts and the codpiece flight-suit landing.

Tom Schaller at Daily Kos advocates a four-part strategy: 1) "reconnect" Iraq and the TWAT in order to show that Bush's TWAT isn't working and terrorism is growing, not diminishing; 2) use Bush's "balking" in both Afghanistan and Iraq to show that he's a shitty war leader; 3) Bush is the "petrified" prez, scared to face reporters, scared speak in public, specifically about his record; 4) Bush fatigue: we've had Bushes in 6 of the last 7 elections and Americans want a change.

And: for anyone still freaked out about the poll numbers, Gallup says that "Bush's bounce is the smallest an incumbent president has received," and puts the race within the margin of error among registered voters.
