inspired me to get into community organization and politics, and i come from a technical/entertainment background. I'm already working no my first project, trying ot get the right people together to rejuvenate a dying section in the city.
Obama was mocked for his early role as community organizer, but it really seems to be a excellent primer in civic executive leadership. You have to cross party lines to get political support, coordinate private businesses, organize a team to assist, and reach skeptics in the community.
