    And I get e-mails nearly every day asking me to make sure I've written what $2000 means to me, and recently suggesting I contact my Representatives and tell them what I want.

    Obama does an amazing job of getting people involved.  Just because those efforts don't get mentioned on standard  media platforms don't assume it's not happening.  We were pretty tied in to the whole election, and it was the OFA people who knew exactly what was happening on the ground - even kossaks were fretting about the ground game.  You have to be willing to get on the inside before you have insider information.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      that part.

      Obama, and his team, totally go around them. They have millions of cell #s, emails, followers who retweet whatever they say. He can reach out to a good chunk of the US DIRECTLY, with no media filter.

      And nobody can stop him from saying what he thinks, either.

      I don't think any pres since FDR has had this kind of direct link to the people.

      He also seems to listen more than other presidents have. He puts people's stories online. He mentions them in speeches. He seems to incorporate the ideas they give him, at least in some limited ways.

      Big change. And, I think, one the people recognize, even if the pundits don't.
