    I am clapping for you! WAY TO GO! YEA!!!

    And if you canvass, don't be nervous, all you have to do is talk about yourself. Your struggles in the economy, with affording healthcare, whatever drew you to Obama. If you keep it as positive as you can and open yourself up with some small confessions about your fears for your future, most good people will be drawn in. They are the ones we want.

    The ones who can't relate to you are worth a simple smile and thank you before you move on.

    I promise, after your volunteer day(s), you will feel better about this election because you will have done something to push it forward. Even if everyone you talk to tells you they are voting for the other side, you will still feel empowered.

    Do something, do anything. Take your diaries and put them into a letter to the editor. I see so many here at KOS that would be marvelous letters. EMAIL is so easy, no stamps, no nothing, just click!

    I felt good today because I fought for the good of my country - my 8-year-old son

      on kerry campaign, I helped organize voter reg in the large town I lived in then and also did out of state trips with sierra club to Reno twice.

      I have done door to door, signed up voters, made calls.

      I just haven't done much this time because i was so upset after the last election I promised my husband who was worried about me that I wouldn't.

      I finally told him this week I can't sit back anymore and was taking my promise back.
