I love the smell of grass (roots campaigning)

October 29, 2008

Wow.  That was fun.  It’s really an experience to sit in a big room, filled with people, all reaching out to other people to support a presidential candidate.  We went en masse to a restaurant to watch his TV spot and returned for another flurry of activity before wrapping it up for the night.

You know, Obama talks a lot about Unity vs. Division and I can tell you that his SF HQ is walking the walk.  When pressed for a time I would commit to return, I told them it was difficult because of childcare.  Their response?  “BRING HER!  We’ll put her to work!  She can make signs, she can greet people, she can deliver water to phone bankers – she can work, too!”

So, little Miss Haley is going to work on her first political campaign on Saturday morning.  I think that may just make me more proud than riding a horse on her own.  Scores of men and women have given their lives so that she can be free and so that she can participate in this great democracy. 

It’s never too early to honor their sacrifices and become and enthusiastic citizen.



  1. Time for a change…we has it!

  2. Now I can be proud of BOTH my girls for being dedicated to help Obama get elected! My heart is bursting with pride! I love you guys!
