An Obama canvasser and Friend of the Blog writes:
Rolled in late last night from Virginia, and I am no longer high on hope. Renewed determination maybe, but not hope. Palin with her so called "balls" has everybody by theirs. What was so disturbing about canvassing was not that other people had convictions I disagreed with, but that most people don't really have any. Or think they have them but don't know why they have them, and don't care that they don't know why they have them.
This clear-eyed assessment both disturbs and motivates B&B. Strategies for breaking through American Torpor? How are you helping the cause of convictions?
