Following Obama's speech on Tuesday, which I think was designed to set the table, Tim Kaine will start the messaging next Thursday:
Democratic National Committee chairman will look to frame the looming midterm elections on his party’s terms in Philadelphia next week, delivering what’s being billed as a major speech at the University of Pennsylvania.
A party official told pa2010.com that Kaine will give the speech Wednesday at Houston Hall. Gov. Ed Rendell will be in attendance. ...
Kaine’s appearance will come just days after his visit to southeast Pennsylvania this week. Party leaders have also planned back-to-back appearances by Kaine and Vice President Joe Biden on “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report,” respectively
Kaine will preview his Wednesday speech on the morning shows that day. I expect his main line of attack will be to equate Congressional Republicans with the Tea Party and George W. Bush. Kaine is in Philly today to raise money for House candidate Manan Trivedi, who is running against Jim Gerlach in Pennsylvania's 6th district,
