As an ardent BO supporter who gave $ and time to both his campaign organization and , if he 'sells out' his own organization entirely to the DNC, I'll consider giving ALL of my future contributions to OUTSIDE organizations such as Moveon and the like!
The current Obama campaign organization needs to walk a careful line on this matter!

This campaign is not about bashing our opponents; it is about uplifting America. If MyBarackObama is folded into a partisan effort to defeat Republicans, I will fervently campaign against it.

I agree I would rather push for healthcare reform, social security overhall, early childhood education, I need something bigger than partisan politics, and I like having the ability to be a part of his presidency just like the campaign. I think he could help the DNC in other ways, send me an e-mail or two about the person running and if I want to contribute in someway, please don't turn this network over to the DNC, also I hope he can keep his campaign offices open as well.
