Democrats Urge Kerry to Turn Up Intensity of Campaign

By ADAM NAGOURNEY and JODI WILGOREN

resident Bush roared out of his New York convention last week, leaving many Democrats nervous about the state of the presidential race and pressing Senator John Kerry to torque up what they described as a wandering and low-energy campaign.

In interviews, leading Democrats - governors, senators, fund-raisers and veteran strategists - said they had urged Mr. Kerry's campaign aides to concentrate almost exclusively on challenging President Bush on domestic issues from here on out, saying he had spent too much of the summer on national security, Mr. Bush's strongest turf.

As the Labor Day weekend began, Mr. Kerry appeared to be heeding the advice with an aggressive attack on Mr. Bush's economic leadership. But many supporters also said they wanted to see Mr. Kerry respond more forcefully to the sort of attacks they said had undercut his standing and to offer a broad and convincing case for his candidacy.

"He's got to become more engaged,'' said Harold Ickes, a former political lieutenant to President Bill Clinton who is now running an independent Democratic organization that has spent millions of dollars on advertisements attacking President Bush. "Kerry is by nature a cautious politician, but he's got to throw caution to the wind."

until he starts offering solid positions, with a few details, on some important issues, he's gonna be perceived as either lackidaisical, panicked, or __________, but not necessarily as a viable option for independent voters.

he needs to be something other than the "not-Bush" candidate, IMO. he's been given a wonderful opportunity to become president... what with all the unrest over the war,the economy, etc., yet he's gotta bring something to the table.

the question is whether there's anything there to bring, other than being 'not Bush'.
