Although the message of the story wasn’t so great, it was nice to hear Virginia Organizing Project folks featured in “Community Organizers Sobered By Reality” by Pam Fessler on the National Public Radio program “Morning Edition” today.

When President Obama took office one year ago, liberal community organizers were ecstatic. They thought, with a former organizer in the White House, their voices would be heard. Obama aides promised them a seat at the table in the new administration. The organizers have had some success, but the reality of how hard it is to change Washington also has set in.

Audio of Ms. Fessler’s story will be available after 9:00 AM this morning at the NPR show’s site.
