  •  5 minutes ago I posted in another diary (7+ / 0-)

    that I hadn't seen that much activity in Philadelphia.  I finished typing and looked out my window to see a canvasser.  Like a mad woman I opened my window (interestingly - the handle fell off in my hand - I don't actually think I'd opened that one since we built this office 7 years ago. but I digress) and hollered "THANKS FOR CANVASSING".  My Obama sign is still up for 2008 so he figured out where the disembodied voice was coming from.

    It's not that I haven't seen a lot - I've seen 3-4 canvassers on my block.  But somehow it just feels quieter and I've been concerned.  In 2008 and 2010 I knew everyone at the offices, but this year they seem to have moved on.

    Still, I stopped at my local staging location this morning and committed to canvassing tomorrow, much as I hate it.  We'll get this done.

    (Center City, Phila.  My neighborhood voted 90% for Obama in 2008)
