Quotes

"I mean, the one-word slogan of the campaign was 'forward,'" said Ben LaBolt, press secretary on the 2012 Obama campaign. "president clinton had said that winning campaigns are about the future and that was particularly true in that presidential campaign."
"Attacking a candidate's wealth or success is a mistake," said LaBolt. "governor romney presented his experience in private equity as his lead qualification to be president, and said that would be the same philosophy he would bring to governing. we made clear that being president is about more than the bottom line—it's making sure all americans have a fair shot to succeed to work hard. governor quinn's message will be strongest if it sticks on that terrain."
"democrats lost in 2010 because they didn't show up" says Democratic strategist Ben LaBolt
