I meant to post this last weekend and forgot to do so.  I think it 
pretty well sums up the plans the Democrats have for Obama's network.

"James Dillon, a onetime Republican activist who grew disgusted with 
politics, was so inspired by Barack Obama's candidacy that he joined 
the campaign's massive volunteer army, hosting house parties and 
recruiting supporters.

"But beyond influencing the November election, Dillon thought he was 
joining a new political movement that would be mobilized for big 
goals-to end poverty or help distressed homeowners, or maybe end U.S. 
reliance on oil.

"So Dillon, a Florida real estate developer, was discouraged by the 
suggestion that arrived by e-mail last week from Obama's campaign 
manager: 'Excited about the much anticipated First Dog?' it read, 
referring to the Obama daughters' quest for a new puppy. 'Support 
your local animal shelter to give animals in your area a chance.'"

Solidarity,
Shawn
