Ground Game

Polls are looking great, Obama's campaign is looking great, but what really, really is going to drive home this victory is the respective Ground Games, or Get Out the Vote Effforts (GOTV).

If you haven't already found THE new site of 2008, go here and read the full, wonderful story.

To wit: The Bush campaign of 2004 defined GOTV efforts in recent American elections -- it's fair to say the Bush GOTV efforts won him the 2004 election.

This year, however, it's a completely different story. Not only has McCain never had a good ground game, even though he had several more months to set one up, but in these final days of the contest, he's shifting funds from GOTV efforts towards more commercials (no doubt dirty, hypocritical, and slanderous). This is a fundamental sign that things are not well in McCainland.

On the flip side, Obama's ground game makes Bush's 2004 efforts look like semi-pro wrestling; captilizing on the long primary, Obama supporters are everywhere, legion, all highly motivated to win this for not only Barack, but the America we all love (and not the America we've been turned into).

If you can do anything in these last few days to help out, it's easy to start. Go to and find the state your interested in. There will be lots of groups and efforts to choose from.

I'll be driving folks to the polls. If one person votes for Obama who would not have otherwise, it will all be worth it.

As Kos has been saying: "Leave it all on the road". Truly, now is the moment to crush the Neocons and end their influence in our country.
