    I have seen next to zero presence for Senator Dodd here.  We hold precinct caucuses -- the first step toward choosing DNC delegates -- on February 9.  Is there any chance at all that the Senator will be able to pick up at least 15% of the votes cast at even a single precinct?

      Believe it or not, a small group of people can dramatically impact the organizing ability of a Presidential candidate. That is particularly true for a campaign operating on a small difficult budget.

      Chris Dodd for President needs people like you to contact their office and volunteer to help organize your area. I assume, if you impress them, that they can help with tools, Washington email address to start organizing meetings, what we used to call Meetups, etc.

      Starting with one meeting announced and promoted in Dkos, MyDD and LOCAL blogs an entire organization can grow into a effective force. It happened for Wes Clark in California, and I was part of the original meeting of 8 people in Orange County, CA that spawned 6 monthly Meetups before it was over. We started with 8 and ended with a mail list of 1,000's.

      Contact their office and see if anyone's been delegated to oversee the Pacific Northwest.

      You can make a difference. Don't back off from a great opportunity because you haven't done it before. There are many in this community that would gladly help from a distance.

      Go for it!
