How To Help Obama Win.

If you live in a swing state such as Pennsylvania or Michigan, the campaign needs your help! Even if you do not live in a battleground state*, your state may be paired with a sister state for more efficient campaigning (for instance, Delaware is pretty much a shoe-in for Obama because of Biden, so we are paired with PA, which is not. And our phone calls go to PA; canvassing, etc., is done in PA).

If you're wondering what you can do, go to www.barackobama.com, find your state and possibly your neighborhood and get involved!

You can make phone calls, canvas neighborhoods, buy bumper stickers and yard signs, bring supplies to the local headquarters, enter data, write a letter to the editor of a newspaper near you...there's something for everyone to do. While I have gone to the local HQ to make phone calls, you can just download a list from the website and make calls from the comfort of your home. Just go to mybarackobama.com, sign up and get going.

Whatever you do, it is not the time to sit around waiting for change, it's time to make change happen.

There are only 15 days left to register to vote. If you are not or you know someone is not registered, you or they can register online! It's easy and fast. You can even vote absentee online.

*Battleground states are: Nevada, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Minnesota, Missouri, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida and New Hampshire.

Let's not take one more election sitting down. Just take one or two hours one night a week or every night (weekend days and nights) to help get our country back to a place where we will be respected and once again a thoughtful contributor to the international community.

If you don't have time to spend actively campaigning, consider donating to a necessary cause. You can donate on the website (when I provide a link, my personal info comes up).

Here in Kansas City (MO) the Obama campaign seems to be doing well. Lots of Obama yard signs and bumper stickers at least. The problem is that while KC and St. Louis generally go blue, the entire rest of the state goes red.

Over in Kansas I've noticed a surprising number of Obama signs, in traditionally conservative/Republican suburbs.

Well, that's good news. In Delaware, Dems do very well except in the Southern County (there are only 3 counties in the entire state :-).

In PA though, Philly is Dem and Pittsburgh in Dem, then as James Carville says, "Alabama is in between."

My Hoosier sis-in-law who is deeply involved in Indiana politics tells me that the state is thisclose to swinging blue. Let's help push them over the edge!

Oh, good. I did hear today that Obama is leading in four battleground states but with 45 days left, who's taking chances? Not me.

It's looking good in Oregon, real good. But I never take anything for granted. Still out there registering voters when I can. Am heading to Indiana to visit family next week, politics will NOT be discussed but I'll keep an ear to the ground and see if I can confirm Raina's observations! Love your blog, happy to have found it!

Hi Kalliope - Thank god for people like you who are out there helping to change things instead of just complaining about the current state of things.

I will be waiting to hear about Indiana. I am with you on not discussing politics with red states - just gives you a hoarse voice. And a headache.

HG, Colorado seems to be shifting toward Obama. Still many GOP head-bangers here (I suspect displaced Texans), but I see more support for Obama every day.

Unfortunately I'm off to Arizona with a truck. Not looking forward to it because it is so very red.

Oh, good! Another bank bites the dust as we speak - I can't believe that it won't help Obama.

To be clear, I meant, "Oh, good, Colorado seems to be shifting," not that another bank bites the dust.

No. No. No. Not good at all.
