I checked my email and found a lovely Thank You message from President Obama

This organization is really phenomenal. A simple chance timing, like this email, when I just finished mopping my happy tears, does make me feel like a valued member of a very big family.

2. Ditto. Phenomenal and SMART!



AND they just wrote this:

Thanks for saying youre in for the next phase of our grassroots movement.

Im excited to get the chance to work with you as we set out to finish what we started.

Over the next four years, weve got an incredible opportunity to keep moving this country forward. This grassroots movement has shown time and again that ordinary people have the power to change our country if we work together to do it.

So locally and nationally, OFA will fight for our shared values on issues like immigration reform, climate change, gun violence, balanced deficit reduction, and more.

Well be working with you and other supporters to write a plan for 2013. This organization will be volunteer-led, always guided by the core principles of "respect, empower, include."

That starts now. Make sure your friends and family know about Organizing for Action, and ask them to add their names now to get involved:

Thanks so much for being a part of this. See you in the field.

3. Me too...

Well, the signature line suggested that he might not have sent a personal email to every supporter...but still a nice touch.

The Obama organization REALLY knows how to use social media. This expertise will become more and more critical in future political campaigns. The Republican reliance on shouting and occasional smoke signals is one of the things that makes me think the country might survive into the next century.
