I am a life long New Yorker currently located in Boston. I work on Steve Grossman's campaign (a candidate for governor of Mass) Being a New Yorker, today hit very close to home for me for obvious reasons.
I felt like I needed to go to watch the race and support the people running, so from about 1-4 I was behind a 2nd security barrier about 20 feet from Boylston where the race was going on.
It was amazing to see the resiliency of the people of this city. To all native Bostonians despite any difference we might have on subjects that are not appropriate for this thread New Yorkers stand with you.
Most people weren't picking up. The responses I got however were positive.
I guess swing state voters have gotten so many calls they aren't answering their phones anymore.
Has any one here had this experience?
This is from 2008 but makes a good point about how we vote.
"Why won't Barack Obama release his elementary school report cards? We need to know if he played well with others. Did he bring gum to class? And if so, did he bring enough for everyone? I certainly hope not, cause that would be socialism."
