Where We Go From Here

The Obama campaign sent out an email today from David Plouffe in an effort to bring the movement for change into action:

Obama SurveyPlease take a few minutes and help shape the future of this movement.

Share your campaign experience and your thoughts on the best way to keep supporting our agenda for change.

The inauguration is just 63 days away, and as President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden prepare to take office, they’ll need your support more than ever.

You’ve built an organization in your community and across the country that will continue to work for change — whether it’s by building grassroots support for legislation, backing state and local candidates, or sharing organizing techniques to effect change in your neighborhood.

Your hard work built this movement. Now it’s up to you to decide how we move forward.

Take this short survey and share your ideas:


Thanks to you, this country has an historic opportunity. Electing Barack was the first big step, but there’s a lot of challenging and important work ahead.

Together, we can keep making history,


David Plouffe
Campaign Manager
Obama for America

The survey functions as a comprehensive debriefing of the Obama field operation, allowing you to rate your experience with your local field office and staff, how often you used MyBO, and what resources were most useful.

The second part of the survey asks if you are interested in continuing to volunteer to support Obama’s agenda of change, asking about the issues that matter most to you and how you are willing to help.

An interesting touch is asking if you are interested in running for elected office yourself. It will be interesting to see how they use this information. The concept of them recruiting a local candidate farm team seems like a great idea.

Finally it allows you to provide extensive feedback about your thoughts on the campaign and the steps forward and then leads you to a donation page to support the Obama agenda.

Did any of you fill out the survey? What are your thoughts about it? Share in the comments.
