Obama on Community Organizing

In yesterday's post, "Sarah Palin: Pit Bull?", I noted the way that both Gov. Palin and Rudy Giuliani seemed to take pride in mocking and ridiculing the work that community organizers do. What does Sen. Obama have to say? Watch:

I particularly like the questions that he poses to Republicans (at about 1:00 into the video):
Why would that kind of work be ridiculous? Who are they fighting for? What are they advocating for? Do they think that the lives of those folks who are struggling each and every day, that working with them to try to improve their lives is somehow not relevant to the Presidency? I think maybe that's the problem. That's part of why they're out of touch and they don't get it because they haven't spent much time working on behalf of those folks.
