We had our final conference call before the primary tonight as well. Our leader, Buffy Wicks, the California Field Director, got a little emotional at the tail end of the call. She was awed and humbled by the level of energy and enthusiasm displayed by the volunteers, and we could hear it in her voice.
The California field operation has been amazing, with just the right mix of guidance and support to allow us volunteers to work our magic. This has been a true grass roots movement, in the great democratic spirit of all that that means. People are striking up conversations in the street with each other about The Issues! People are talking, but more importantly, they are listening. I frequently hear of high school students who can't yet vote, asking for how they can volunteer.
That's something to be proud of, and definitely something worth getting emotional over!
If this hasn't been done yet in other states, it will be. And it will be the reason why Obama will be President in January!
