The Politics of Yesterday, and of Tomorrow

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2009

There is a relationship between Obama's strategic ambitions for our nation and the tactic called 'community organizing.' Strategy and tactic are mutually reinforcing, reciprocally inspiring. It turns out that what many thought was merely terrific rhetoric - ''We are the change that we seek'' has real meaning. Essentially, all the other ongoing efforts at energizing and mobilizing people old and young are critical components of the new political equation. It is time to dismiss the divisive, top-down politics of yesterday, and move on, to the politics of tomorrow.
