I’ve been crowing about an Obama victory for some time. But I’m not complacent. I went again today to my local Obama office to do phone bank calls. Last time I went, a few weeks ago, the office on Adeline Street in Berkeley was filled and busy. Today, when every poll and pundit is forecasting an easy Obama win? The main office was so packed that they opened an overflow office down the street. That in turn was so crowded they opened a second overflow office in the pizzeria down the street. Wow.
I made calls to Virginia to GOTV (get out the vote). Very heartening experience all round. Nice Virginian bit of trivia. One of my calls was to Robert Lee. Quite a name for a Virginian.
