  • "In this Internet era, it's not enough to run a campaign; you need to lead a movement. That's what Obama did. If you look at their site, their online videos, their online ads, everything they did, it wasn't about 'me, myself and I.' It was about 'we' and 'us.’” Mindy Finn, Republican political operative
  • Don't be surprised if a canvasser knocks on your door in 2012 and, glancing at his iPhone, says, "Ms. Smith, thanks for your $50 donation four years ago--and for attending the Joneses' party on the environment. Care to call voters in Ohio to help reelect President Obama? Oh, and your neighbor Mrs. Jensen couldn't get to the polls in 2008. Think you could give her a lift on Election Day?“ MIT Technology Review
