Blog for Iowa: The Future of Iowa Grassroots Politics
Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa
On the dust cover of The Audacity to Win by David Plouffe, it says, "Plouffe was not just the architect of the campaign that put Barack Obama in the White House; he also built a grassroots movement that changed the face of politics forever and re-energized the idea of democracy itself." A bit self serving on the part of the publisher, Viking Penguin, but of course it would be. If the campaign Plouffe organized changed the face of politics, the citizenry does not like the way it looks, especially the partisan visage we see on the 111th Congress and the President's inability to pass many of his major initiatives during his first year in office.
