  •  Not me! I'll probably still be awake from the (21+ / 0-)

    night before, as I was in 2008, 2004... most presidential election years...and yet again, I will be in a city far from home, again in Reno, NV. At 6AM, I will not be at a polling place, I will be opening a campaign office. Last time it was an OFA staging point, this time, maybe the DNC office, who knows?

    While the polling places are being set up, we will again send out early morning teams to hang "door knockers" so that the people we have spent months on finding, OUR voters, are reminded as they leave for work, to remember to vote. And I'll be sending out teams to Get-Out-OUR-Vote in the morning, using the information gathered for months by tireless volunteers.

    I'll catch a nap in my car again, and do the data entry for the canvassers as they return, cutting new territory for the next shift. I'll be sending maps and info to the afternoon staging areas, making sure that our drivers pick up voters who still need a ride get one. I may take a late run canvass as I did last time, so that just before the polls close everyone on our lists is standing on line, and then I'm done.

    Excuse me if I decline my invitation to the victory party, I will be unconscious in my motel room.

    I don't feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves. -John Wayne (-9.00,-8.86)
