We have a lot of work to do. Be inspired.
h/t to Joe Sudbay at Americablog
I feel as though I have done very little for Obama's campaign. I have donated more where I felt my pittance made a bigger difference (No on 8; Heinrich for NM-01), I have not phoned or rung doorbells. I have played cheerleader here but doubt that it has influenced a single vote.
Today, in the tiniest little gesture, after a quick trip to the bank, I stopped next door in Walgreen's and picked up a case of bottled water, then schlepped it over to the local Obama HQ to keep at least a few of the throngs of volunteers hydrated. As I walked back to the car I thanked those volunteers just arriving. Then I rushed home to park the car in the garage, lock up the house, and be ready for the taxi to the airport.
Maybe a bottle of water will help one volunteer have the one encounter that yields one more vote. I hope so.
