22. Obama stuff is like gold here in Philly...
People are willing to volunteer hours of their time just for a button.

And you know what, good on the Obama campaign for making them do this. It goes right along with the idea of not giving out "street money". No more old politics. No more supporting your candidate only by pinning a button to your chest or a sign to your lawn. You want to support your candidate? Hit the streets. Get involved in politics again.

I'm finally starting to get it. Even if it annoys the hell out of me to have to tell people that, "No I don't have a button for you" and "No, you'll have to go to the office for a lawn sign" when I'm out canvassing.

Okay, sometimes I have a button. I sat next to the sweetest little old lady on the bus today and she asked about my button. I didn't have an extra, so I gave her mine. And it was my favorite too. Oh well, I couldn't resist!
