I spent last evening making phone calls at the local headquarters of my chosen presidential candidate. The sole purpose of this particular effort is to identify undecided voters for follow-up contact. My assignment was to ask them only one question: Which candidate would you vote for if the election were held today? It was very tempting to try to engage the "undecideds" in a longer conversation, but the folks who said "I won't vote for any of 'em" were the ones I wanted to shake some sense into.
I should add that we're in Ohio, not a state that's already "in the bag" for anyone. This weekend, I'll be knocking on doors and I hope to run into some of those non-voters while I'm out. I'd really like to ask them why they're abdicating their authority.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
