I did some calling for Obama tonight. It actually was really fun. I only got hung up on a couple of times and most people genuinely seemed happy and grateful I was calling.
Reading this piece by Chris Bowers about how much better the polls look now than in 2004 and watching all 5 political "experts" on ABC's This Week predict over 300 electoral college votes for Obama have made me feel pretty darn optimistic. I still often feel totally panicked, but when I think about it rationally, rather than being affected by my post-traumatic stress syndrome from '04, I really feel this year is ours. Yes we can. Yes we will.
