      with regard to under-valuing, under-staffing their computer operations. It's not an ideology thing, just a force of habit. Now that it's common knowledge that using sophisticated data analysis/mining works, why wouldn't they do the same thing?

      What the Obama campaign did is reproducable. It's not magic. It just takes an organization that's willing to invest in the effort.  Obama's data nerd weren't magicians. Or if they were, magicians can be bought, and they're more likel to be Republican/Libertarian than Democrats.
