Obama Volunteers

A resident of Great Falls who supports Barack Obama got the chance to meet her candidate by knocking on lots of doors:

vickiobama.jpgVicki, a former teacher from Great Falls, is a lifelong Republican who is supporting Barack for President. She admires Barack becase she says, “he’s a thinking person,” and she and her husband, a retired military officer, both voted for Barack by absentee ballot…Vicki was one of the ten winners of the “Montana Change Challenge,” and after knocking on over 100 doors last Saturday, she was able to meet Barack after his rally in Bozeman. She said that the event in Bozeman was “electrifying,” and that Barack’s charisma “reminds me of JFK.”

And another Great Falls resident who supports Obama is Dee:

Dee phonebanks in our Great Falls office and recruits volunteers to help spread the word about Barack. She shares her feelings about Barack and sets the record straight about false attacks against him.

Although I’m not an Obama supporter, I do admire his “netroots” campaign; definitely seems to be more on the ball than John McCain’s.

UPDATE:
the LA Times notes that McCain has a “web gap.”

  1. Apparently, Vicki’s definition of what it means to be a “lifelong Republican” is a lot different than that held by most lifelong Republicans, huh?

  2. Electoral-vote.com

    Clinton 327 Mccain 194 17 Ties

    Obama 266 Mccain 248 24 Ties

    And the DNC and superdelegates miss this information how? Unbelievable!
