66. Wow. I never thought I'd see you say that. I'm not even offended
by the babies comment since I don't think you meant it to be offensive. I recognize that you're sad about the outcome and you have a right to your feelings.

Will you work for Obama in the GE? I have met so many wonderful democrats during this campaign, and yes, many of them are in their 20s. What bowled me over is how very bright and energetic they are. You'll find the same thing when you start volunteering - and I'm sure you will volunteer because you're a good Dem.
