Josh Marshall observes this morning:
The fact remains a little breath taking.
And apparently Obama is really going to try to keep some portion of his mobilized base together, ready to have his back. A couple of days ago, campaign volunteers got an email over the signature of campaign guru David Plouffe, urging us to host or attend local "Change is Coming" house meetings on December 13 and 14. Want to find one? Sign up here.
That's ambitious and certainly a good idea, but where this got interesting was the choice of local house meetings I found available when I followed the link. All flavors of activists are jumping on the idea. Some examples [the descriptions in bold text are my additions]:
You can find your local variants through Change is Coming. Will anything come of any of this? On the one hand, this process seems a recipe for chaos, pulling and hauling in all directions. On the other, the most organized campaign in modern experience -- now attached in some way to the office of the President -- is behind it, so maybe some of this goes somewhere.
Hard to know, but I guess I should go to some of these meetings! I have choices.
