I could have been a phone banker…

Phone bank
Just got stopped in the street by a young woman. “Do you support Obama?” Well, I explained, I don’t have a vote in this election.

“It doesn’t matter. If you’ve any time free tomorrow, we’ve got a beautiful apartment, come and join us in calling voters in the swing states…”

I did point out that I probably wouldn’t be very popular, as I would’t really appreciate any foreigners telling me how to vote, but my new, enthusiastic friend smiled it off. Incredible to think that the western world’s biggest election involves trying to recruit foreign tourists to the campaign…

Still, they did give me the address of a decent election party. That’s what counts here.
