MoveOn "Owns" the Democrats

Yahoo! News - MoveOn to Democratic Party: 'We Own It': "'In the last year, grass-roots contributors like us gave more than $300 million to the Kerry campaign and the DNC, and proved that the party doesn't need corporate cash to be competitive,' the message continued. 'Now it's our party: we bought it, we own it, and we're going to take it back.' "

Watch this. It should be interesting. This is our first taste, it seems to me, of a grassroots group becoming powerful. In no time flat, they will be the lobbyists they so enjoy denigrating now. It is the natural progression of things. They were cute and cuddly as a little grassroots organization that could, but they may become ordinary, everyday power brokers. Just what the Democrats say they fight against.
