Good summary in the Daily News on how de Blasio and his team crafted a message of change, stuck with that message, and rode it all the way to Gracie Mansion, with the help of his some affecting ads using his family and the ineptitude of his opponents.
Nothing surprising in the article, but it does show how deft a campaigner de Blasio is.
Whether he shows the same skill at governing is another matter.
Barack Obama is a terrific campaigner.
Not so interested or competent at that (Race to the Top, Obamacare, etc.)
