    ...I'm a vol. in Vermont, and part of out push now is to get everyone to vote even in what is pretty safe blue territory.
    we need a clear victory here, if only to discourage future parties from just saying No to everything to force failure. if it is shown to work, in any way, we'll see a lot more of it.

    also, statewide and local races are counting on you. they don't have huge ad budgets, they depend in part on the top ticket carrying them along. there's creepy PAC money attacking Vermont's Dem state treasurer and auditor candidates...ho hum, right? well, Vermont is moving to single payer, and the GOP is hoping to stop it in Vermont, so it can't be shown to work. get out to vote!

    even if you have no similar minor races with national implications in your state, do it for the popular vote count. we need you!

      I'll edit my diary to reflect that blue state voters are just as important!
