What will I do after the primaries are over?
When the primaries are over, Manchester turns into a ghost town. I'm volunteering for the first time in a presidential campaign, and I'm hooked! Will I have to follow the candidates from state to state like people who followed the Dead? And forget city politics--I hate it. I only have about a month and a half left! What does an addicted volunteer do when the circus leaves town?

1. Find out where and how your candidate needs help--ask now, beat the rush!
Edited on Sat Nov-17-07 03:25 AM by MADem
You could volunteer south of your border for your candidate--the MA primary is in March.

Or you could go to another state where help is needed--depending on the candidate, you could end up in someone's spare room on an air mattress, but if you're a good worker, I imagine they'd want your help.

(Edited to add on...!)

2. I did my bit for democracy. Backing Kucinich all the way.
Once Hillary and her corporate backers get the gold ring. All I need do is sit back and vote for a triangulator. They don't need our help. Why? Rupert Murdock will do all he can to get her elected.

3. Are You Sure Rupert Doesn't Really Want The Ghoul to be pResident?
Perhaps Murdoch is only backing HRC because the Ghoul can beat her.

4. You recall Murdock got his Communications bill of
1996 signed into law thanks to Bill Clinton. Plus , Clinton signed into law a special bill passed by Newt Gingrich, granting Murdock citizens and waiving lots of taxes owed, by Murdock taking up citizenship in the US. Murdock should have lots of gratitude for the Clintons. Why else did he have a special fundraiser for Hillary for both Senate and the presidency. Of course he might prefer The Ghoul. But, it's better to hedge your bets. Of corse we will have no choice but to back Hillary against the Ghoul. But, we don't have to like it. Unless, she breaks a Kucinich rule and endorse pre-emptive war. Then I am not sure I could support her. See how she reacts to Bush's likely call to strike Iran first.
