Digby is asking whether Obama will govern his grassroots network, or whether it will govern him. "We the people" once enlisted under Obama's banner may not demoblize as he slides to the center and becomes an apologist for a mildly reformed version of the broken status quo.

Now, we shall have change whether he and his cohort of DC insiders will lead us there or not.
