MoveOn.org has basically issued a threat to Barack Obama that they will be heard in the Obama administration.
The fact is, MoveOn gave Obama $88mil and they want their moneys worth. They want their aganda taken care of.
Eli Pariser, Executive Director of MoveOn, issued the following statement on Obama’s victory:“Our members sense the opportunity to achieve things that seemed improbable if not impossible only a year ago. For our members, this is the culmination of a decade of work to build a progressive, people-driven politics in America.“President Obama will face daunting challenges from the day he takes office. We look forward, however, to being part of the enormous wave of civic and political engagement that his Presidency has inspired and that will enable him to achieve the things that have been on the top of his agenda and ours. We look forward to the change all of us worked so hard to create.”
The last paragraph says they will be part of the “civic and political engagement” to achieve their combined agendas.
His own side is on his case and he hasn’t even taken office. This could be a very interesting four years.
