Obama's Loss Traced to Me

Talk about political campaigns in the 21st century. Check out this personalized video a friend, my mom, and a fellow blogger sent me to encourage me to vote for Obama on November 4th. Two quick thoughts:

1. I think the 2000 Bush-Gore election debacle is still close to the surface for all of us. We were collectively stunned and reminded that our votes actually do make a difference.

2. Technology is really transforming how we reach potential voters. I was amazed to see my own name on the screen. I was strangely compelled and felt as though I held the political fate of our country in my hands.

How crazy cool and empowering is that?

Day 9 and counting.
