How Can Our Leaders Lead the Resistance?

From Bob Cesca at Salon:

Democratic A-listers like Michelle Obama, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Tim Kaine, Joe Biden and, yes, Barack Obama must be dispatched into red districts to conduct town halls and listening sessions with Trump voters. Use the Chris Hayes town hall with Bernie Sanders from a while back as a template for how best to talk to this demographic. Another possibility is for this same group of Democrats to appear on local television newscasts in GOP-dominant markets. If the Democratic economic populist message is framed just the right way, centered around economic fairness and making the super-wealthy pay their fair share, it will be possible to begin turning those red areas purple and the purple areas blue.

I've been thinking for a few weeks about what our leaders, particularly the Obamas, the Bidens, and the Clintons (not mentioned, but they're important) could do to help the #Resistance. This is as good a suggestion as any I've heard. When can they get started?
