I love stuff like this:
Today, Obama’s team is collecting signatures to to pressure Sens. Gregg and Sununu to end the war in Iraq. Unoffiically, the event serves another,more Alinskian purpose. There are so many Obama volunteers statewide that the campaign itself cannot accomodate all the solicited help. So today’s event is a place-holder of sorts, a way for those thousands of volunteers to invest their time for Obama’s greater cause. The canvass cements their link to Obama by appealing to another part of their political self-interest.
