Well, here it is. The day we've been working for. We'll never know if we were able to sway any of those undecideds we've talked to over the last two months, but we did our best, and in the process learned a lot about ourselves and a whole lot about Barack Obama and his vision and plan for our country. I hope, at the end of the day, or by mid-week, the decision will be made, and he'll be our nominee. I'm looking forward to his debates with McCain.
Today we'll do more Get Out the Vote. We have lists and lists and lists of our supporters, so we go to their houses to make sure they've voted and to offer to take them to the polls, if they need some assistance. At 8 pm, when our polls close, we're having a big watch party at headquarters. Tomorrow we clean up HQ, bring all our donated items back home, and the young and passionate organizers who have led us for the last two months will be off to their next assignments.
We'll be sad to see them go, but we're, well, sort of exhausted - basically working two jobs every day - and it will be nice to have some down time. We've told our main organizer that wherever she goes, we'll come there and campaign for a week when we're most needed.
We had 30 - 40 volunteers show up on Thursday and Friday from all over the country to help us with Get Out the Vote. It was great - old people, young people, black people, white people - knocking on doors here in our little town in Montana.
If Barack runs his White House anything like he's run his campaign, he'll make us proud.
