Obama Calls in 527 Calvary

From Marc Ambinder:
"... after of year of telling donors not to contribute to 527 groups, of encouraging strategists not to form them and of suggesting that outside messaging efforts would not be welcome in Obama's Democratic Party, Obama's strategists have changed their approach.

An Obama adviser privy to the campaign's internal thinking on the matter says that,with less than two months before the election and with the realization that Republicans have achieved financial parity with Democrats, they hope that Democratic allies -- what another campaign aide termed "the cavalry" -- with come to Obama's aid."

Obama has been willing to cave on every other stance, from public financing to wiretapping to lapel pins.  This should not surprise anyone ...
