Down but not out

Obama lost in California, New York and Massachussetts but the campaign is not over. A family member circulates this endorsement by Marshall Ganz, who thinks Obama 'gets' the lesson of social movements of the past. He says:
Self interest is not enough around which to mobilise social change...Self interest can keep things the way they are. But if you are going to organise change you need levels of commitment, courage, willingness to take risks, go into uncertain waters. And that requires moral commitments, values commitments.
