    how to use the power they already always had.

    Have WE learned our lessons?   It was never his job to do it all for us.   The President doesn't have such royal powers.

    We need to look at what needs fixin -- & get to fixin it.  

    Just pointing out problems doesn't fix.  Study, learn, share & come up with reasonable solutions.  Then organize to
     the people behind it.   People will work toward a good sense goal.

    Election officials, rules, machines, etc. Need to start being assessed at local levels --- and plans made to fix what roadblocks are harming fair elections.   Start now.

    Make sure we have a good candidate in EVERY race.  Two dead guys got elected. Too many live guys ran unopplosed.

      I think Plouffe said that in an interview recently, when asked - what is next for the OFA machine - if it will be handed over to the DNC.

      He said something to the effect that just giving people a data base won't win elections. People need to have a candidate with positions that they can rally around and then go out and galvanize that support.

      SO though the OFA will be  a great foundation for the next candidate, we need to ensure we get a strong candidate that can build on the platform Obama left behind. Part of why we succeeded is because lots of people believed in the candidate.

      This is our moment...this is our time! President Barack Obama
