    In the short term, the net effect is that the 2012 debates and remaining campaign conversation will be on our turf, using our framing, not theirs. And this is big.

    We've come a long way, baby. Good bye, Reverend Wright, hello Middle Class.

    #3: ensure network neutrality; #2: ensure electoral integrity; #1: ensure ecosystemic sustainability.
