President Obama's latest move is true political innovation--aggressively bringing politics back to the grassroots. Reportedly, the President intends to call upon the massive social capital acquired during his campaign to pressure Congress to pass his budget, a tried and true strategy with clear nonprofit origins. This technique is not only affirmation that we elected a president who actually believes that his job is to represent the interests of the American people, it also validates the direct link between the democratic system and and the community-based traditions of nonprofit America. Our Regenerate hats are off to you, Sir.
