We have a group in Virginia called The Brigades.  It consists of the core group of volunteers who participated 6 years ago in the insurgent campaign that brought Jim Webb to the Senate.  The group still meets monthly, and maintains a list serv to help continue organization.

I thought i would share part of an email that just came out:

This Saturday and Sunday, more than 1800 Obama volunteers canvassed well over a quarter of a million voters, just in Virginia. That is your real convention bounce! Karl Rove and his secret money attack ads can kiss my grits.
There are some things that money cannot buy.  That is loyalty. That is personal commitment.  At least in Virginia, it is still on the ground for Obama.

Take it for what it is worth.

And oh by the way, Nate Silver as of earlier this morning had the Old Dominion as 77% likely to go for Obama.  Add in the three states that are even more likely -  NH, NV and WI - and the presidential election is done.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
