Tonight, I joined my fellow hope-filled politicos at the Barack Obama Headquarters in Lancaster City. We talked and planned phone banking, community canvassing, GOTV (Get Out The Vote), and the “Superbowl, World Series, World Cup-like event” that is the 22nd of April in PA. April 22nd is primary day. I’ll be living at the Obama HQ that whole day, providing they get the cable installed so we can watch the results in real-time on cable news.
I made 36 phone calls this evening and to my happy surprise not one registered democrat declared a vote for Hillary. Everyone who was sure of their vote strongly supported Obama. There were three undecided, but no one declared support for Clinton. I think Obama is going to claim an upset victory in PA.
I’ll be making more phone calls between now and primary day. I’ll also be volunteering wherever else I can help out in the campaign. It’s a great and incredibly well organized movement. The online infrastructure and web applications are absolutely incredible. Somebody has done the homework. It’s amazing to be part of such a well organized grassroots effort. Incredible …
I am meeting some fantastic new people too!
