Anything else? Well, Illinoisans such as my myself will get offers, like the one I received this evening from Jeremy Bird, the OFA's national field director. He left a message for me on my answering machine--which I dutifully recorded.
Volunteer in the "critical battleground state of Wisconsin for one day," Bird promises, and in return you'll get a ticket to the "Election Night Watch Party" in Chicago at McCormick Place.
But instead of gathering in Grant Park as the cultists did four years ago, the campaign has chosen a more modest location. Oh, they're not calling it a victory party. I wonder why that is?
"This is your chance to be part of history," Bird pleads. But wasn't 2008 the historic occasion? Oh, I forgot, everything is historic with The One.
Bird, to my knowledge, is not related to Big Bird.
Just think about this item: A few months ago Wisconsin was viewed as safe territory for the Obama-Biden ticket.
As for Election Night: Is the Obama campaign worried about their ability to fill McCormick Place?
