Good overview. As I posted on the "We are all community organizers" group, I wish that Obama would respond by saying that his campaign is an organizing tool to build a movement for fundamental change, as he has said before, rather than as he did: "They're talking about the three years of work I did right out of college as if I'm making the leap from two or three years out of college into the presidency. So, look, I would argue that doing work in the community to try to create jobs, to try to bring people together, to try to rejuvenate communities that have fallen on hard times, to set up job training programs that have been hard hit when the steel plants closed, that's relevant only in understanding where I'm coming from, who I believe in, who I'm fighting for, and why I'm in this race."
