      I walked Democratic neighborhoods, trying to convince people that they should put out yards signs for Obama and local Democrats.  People told me they were "afraid" because their Republican neighbors might see.  I would tell them, "This is a Democratic neighborhood.  Everybody on your street is a Democrat, but everybody thinks everybody else is a Republican!"
