Why Isn't Obama Using His Email List?

Ben Smith: "President Obama and his victorious campaign team have signaled that they won't repeat what many Democratic activists view as the signal mistake of 2009: Failing to deploy the campaign's massive grassroots network, and particularly its email list, to help govern."

"But the early indications are that, despite feisty emails and tough talk, Obama is again choosing private negotiations with Congressional leaders over public pressure on legislators. The most important indicator: The President has not taken the one step that really matters: Asking his millions of supporters to deluge their local members of Congress with demands that they pass the president's policy agenda."
