How to be positively aggressive

Although aggressiveness in politics is usually associated with negativity, as in 'negative attack ads,' that’s not always the case; indeed, sometimes a politician needs to be aggressively positive.

Anyway, all this is what I mean by positive aggressiveness, it’s just about refusing to allow your opponents to put you on the defensive or off message. Of course, Sun Tzu basically said the same thing, only more poetically.Photograph courtesy of Wikimedia Commons
