"It's up to you! You've got the power!"

At the end of his speech last night in Virginia, President Obama went off script. Check it out at 25:15 in this video.

I was backstage with David Plouffe. Some of you guys know he’s sort of a mastermind of campaign organization. And we were talking about how as the campaign goes on, we’ve become less relevant. I’m sort of a prop in the campaign. [Laughter]. He’s just botherin' a bunch of folks, calling, asking what’s going on.

The power is not with us any more. The planning – every thing we do – it doesn’t matter because now it’s all up to you. It’s up to the volunteers. It’s up to somebody knocking on a door. It’s up to somebody making a phone call. It’s up to somebody talking to their mom or their dad or their wife or their husband or their grandma or grandpa. And that’s how democracy is supposed to be! It’s up to you! You’ve got the power!
