Brooks offers a roadmap for recovery for President Obama if his party takes a defeat in Tuesday’s election. It includes winning back independents, redefining his identity, responding to the nation’s fear about decline, and building an institutional structure to support a more moderate government policy approach. Brooks looks at each in turn and says if Obama can implement this plan, his election in 2012 will be much rosier than this year’s election.
Brooks is a New York Times columnist.
