    Obama campaigned from the bottom up in a sense, getting tens of thousands of committed volunteers and millions more making small donations and feeling like they were building an unstoppable movement. It made the volunteers and small money donors feel more politically empowered than they had ever felt in their lives. And there was an assumption that his governance would follow the same pattern of empowering the little people with leadership that focused on them and their needs for once. But it was all an illusion, a presumption that was monumentally wrong.
