    but Lieberman voters will be getting free rides to the polling station---don't get overconfident.

      Actually, when I came across a voter who needed a ride, I took down their phone number and handed it in with the canvassing at Meriden HQ.  I was under the impression that the campaign staff would find rides for people if they needed them.

      •  I'm sure they will.... (0+ / 0-)

        but the effort is a lot bigger on Lieberman's behalf.

      •  what is Ned, broke? (0+ / 0-)

        He's been getting tons of money from us and he has plenty of his own.  Are you telling me that he's not arranging to have vans and cars available by, you know, RENTING them for the day?

        •  Can't say (9+ / 0-)

          They had a huge staff meeting yesterday.  Volunteers were told to stay away for a few hours.  When I came back after canvassing, HQ was eerily quiet and calm.  Everyone there has the look of good students who studied for the exam and know they can ace it.  Earlier in the day, there were stacks of signs everywhere.  When I came back, they were gone.  I've been told by campaign veterans that Tom Swan is running the best campaign they've ever seen.  
          There are always things that can't be foreseen.  There may be cracks in the organization that we will be analysing later.  They probably could have used a bit more help this weekend, for example.  Maybe they could have nailed down a bit more committment of time from some of us.  But I think these people know what they are doing. They didn't tell me what their transportation plans were but when I told them about people needing rides, they said they would take care of it.
