Another great turn of phrase from the latest Obama "woe is my fundraising" email.
This election will be a test of the model that got us here. We'll learn whether it's still true that a grassroots campaign can elect a president -- whether ordinary Americans are in control of our democracy in the face of massive spending.
Didn't John McCain's campaign use the same line in 2008, when they were buried by Obama's fundraising?
Ordinary Americans will control their democracy in November - by electing Republicans.
