"No, We Can't" - why the Obama campaigns internet grass-roots network has melted away

It's several months old, and rather pessimistic, but this editorial feels worth passing along - I know I certainly feel similar, albeit far more muted. We 'Hoped' for another FDR, we got another business-as-usual (by global and historic standards Obama is very moderate politically).
...[E]verything we had Hope™d for has either not panned out, been compromised so far as to be unrecognizable, or seemingly been forgotten.
...
We wanted the criminal injustices perpetrated by the Bush administration to be recognized and prosecuted. That was judged to be too politically expensive and was quickly forgotten. If we did that, Obama would have a difficult time getting his other major policy goals accomplished.
