My wife and I went and volunteered for three hours today doing phone banking for the Democratic party. I was sure it wouldn’t make much of a difference, but I wanted to see what was up at the campaign HQ and talking to Democratic voters was fun (we called people on a list of strong supporters of Erskine Bowles). Most people weren’t home, but all of the ones that were had already voted. All of them. I was amazed. A lot of them had taken advantage of early voting.
