My best memory of the election......
Canvasing on November 3rd.

FIRST door I knocked on was a retired black man who was going to vote the next day for Obama and said it was the first time he had ever voted in his life. Said that he didn't think it mattered before.

And I can disagree that maybe it did matter, but I also understood his side of it.

I am teary eyed today for that man!!
