    or three weeks ago he made hundreds of calls to Iowa, again, engaged almost everyone and almost everyone was undecided...so he is taking personal credit for the poll lead Obama has there.

    Oh, I wasn't talking about waiting months to call back...just keeping the same names to the same person so they feel that they know the Obama supporter.  For instance, if he keeps the names of the leaners he talked to last night and follows up (like they were a business client), where he calls them say twice or three times a month  (particualrly if he can report some small happening).

      is a calling tool on barackobama.com for local calls to recruit more volunteers, inform about new events, new offices opening. We call the same people 3-4 times between now and Election Day. The calls really are gratifying. Only one switched from Obama in Feb to McCain purely for business interests (free trade buff), but at least 8 - of 35 calls! - will pick up phones to call voters in battleground states or head into the new campaign office. Every day more people sign up for my phone banks, voter registration drives - create an event, and they will come! It's pretty amazing.
