Obama Machine Heads to Reston Tonight

Amy Gardner

Folks from President Obama's grassroots political machine, Organizing for America, will host a meeting in Reston tonight to take questions and ideas from supporters and volunteers as part of a national listening tour.

The meeting will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Fairfax's North County Government Center, at 12000 Bowman Towne Drive in Reston.

Participants will be asked to offer ideas on how to support President Obama's priorities locally, notably health care reform, and how to make their voices heard in Washington.

Organizing for America, which operates under the umbrella of the Democratic National Committee, carries the goal of building on the grassroots network that Obama built during last year's presidential campaign and using it to advance his policy agenda.

Right, because citizen involvement and interest in an important issue that affects all of us is just a terrible awful thing in a democracy -- except, of course, when citizens think identically to seawolfR. In that case, I'm guessing, it's a great idea.
