He should point to the celebs used to get folks to attend Dem events and say something like "Have you seen the list of folks who appeared with Sen Obama? It's a Who's Who of great American entertainers. I may be going about this all wrong. He's the great speech maker but look at how he uses his undercard to draw crowds.
