5. She may even be in Clawson.
I guess it's a hugh!!!!!! parade.

I went door to door in Clawson handing out flyers this afternoon -- just to Dem or Independent or "Unknown" doors to get her name out before the parade. It's pretty Republican around there, so we didn't have a ton of houses on each of the blocks we got to this afternoon.

Most people weren't home, so we just left the lit in the door, but of those who were, most were cordial, but curt. One older guy said she's got his vote -- he'll vote for any Dem and will put up any Dem lawn signs. The one who really floored me was the 30-ish, good-looking guy who came to the door, took the lit and said "We don't usually vote." I was pretty speechless. I just wanted to shake him and say -- "You fucking idiot! You have no right to complain about anything if you don't vote. I hope you're happy with things the way they are." But I didn't. I just said we need all the support we can get in November and he said he'd think about voting. Yeah, right. Sure he will.

I just don't understand people like that.
