FromDC2Iowa: Change we can no longer believe in

Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa

Obama: No Longer "Change We Can Believe In"? ... I really doubt that
there will be many of Senator Barack Obama's supporters who will stay
home, let alone vote for Senator John McCain, because of Obama's
recent flip-flops on major issues. And apparently he's counting on
that as well since he's just left $85 million of public money on the
table. But can he now continue to count on his supporters' continued
financial support, and enthusiastic campaigning, between now and
November? That has become more problematical. As anecdotal evidence, a
friend has shared with me an email she received from an Obama
supporter in California that reported, "Barack Obama owes me $600.43.
I sent him my (federal government economic) stimulus rebate with the
proviso that if he opted out of public finance he should return my
contribution. I enclosed a self-addressed envelope with a 43 cent
stamp attached."
