My Nervous Effort to Campaign

You remember that list of doors to knock on I downloaded from the Obama website? I said I was all excited about getting out and doing this.

Well, I'm going out again for the second time in a few minutes and I'm not excited. My first foray was locked doors and no answer, except for a woman who answered a buzz over a speaker but didn't say anything I could understand. Not very fruitful. No big help to my cause.

My other addresses--19 of them--are all on one street and it's a bars-on-the-windows kind of street about six blocks from my office. If I had good sense, I'd get somebody to go with me, but that's a lot of trouble and I just want to get this list done, and go back to the comfort of campaigning by phone and blog.

The Bold thing would be to get set up to do this canvassing right, with a partner, going at the best time of day. Which is not how Bold is usually envisioned.

But at least I'm going to get it done.

Unless I change my mind.

I'll let you know tomorrow.

Be careful, none of this is worth getting hurt over. I definitely give you lots of credit for standing behind something that you believe in.

Thanks, Debbie. It turned out fine. As I report on today's post.
